    Any of you kind of wish you could be on a ride stuck upsidedown.

    i honestly have mixed feelings about that i kind of wish it could happen but then its like i would be scared if it happened and i would also be bored and annoyed idk its just i really have mixed feelings but at the same time it looks like it could be an interesting exprence and i am just wondering if anyone anyone else has wondered what it would be like to be stuck on a ride while upsidedown.

    I would never ever want to be stuck upside down on a coaster. The blood rushing to your head is dangerous if allowed to happen for too long. Also, if the cause of the ride meant that simply being pushed through the rest of the loop was impossible, I would HATE having to be evacuated upside down. If I were to ever get stuck on a ride, I would hope it's right-side-up.

    I don't even remotely wish this on anybody. I would think it is very uncomfortable to be in that position for any length of time.

    I can't think of anything I would want to happen less to me on an amusement ride that didn't involve maiming or death. The headache this would cause would be unbelievable, and I would imagine would last several days, not to mention the neck strain.
    My hardest earned credit is The Legend at Holiday World, first ridden 5.19.2012, exactly 1399 days after my first visit to Holiday World.

    I got stuck right-side up on Ricochet at KD for 20 minutes, and that was horrible enough. Upside down? No thank you. I can't even imagine the bruises you'd have on your legs the next day, not to mention the headache.

    i was stuck u/d for almost 15 min on a carnival ride called the claw at heavenbound christianfest and it wasn't bad because they played gentle music to keep us calm. the songs were i can only imagine by mercyme and revelation song(newsboys version) during the song god's not dead also by newsboys they got us off! since it was at an all christian carnival and there was heavenly music and atmosphere there i wasn't scared i just focused on god.

    Nope. I wouldn't want that to happen to me. As been mentioned before, the blood rushing to your head and not to mention the pain it will cause on your body anywhere that your body is falling into the restraints. It would not be comfortable at all. I don't even like the feeling of certain exercises I do which require my head to be slightly upside down and that's only for a minute or so. I also got stopped on V2 for 20 minutes just ahead of the station. After a while, it gets to be uncomfortable not being able to move much and those retraints start to hurt.

    I'd probably have some sort of panick attack just getting stuck on any roller coaster up right. Only way I'd want to be restrained for any extended period of time would be by a girl, definitely not a roller coaster.

    I was once stuck upside down on a Banzai ride at my county fair. It was no more than five minutes but I just remember hearing the motor die down and the arms locked vertical. Not too many happy people after we finally got off. They closed it the rest of the night. The only other stranded experience I have was atop Acrophobia for a little under half an hour. THAT was highly uncomfortable and seeing as I'm terrified of open heights I was not having fun. It didn't even drop. The mechanics took ten minutes to slowly lower the car back to the ground. Both events were not fun and I would not wish myself or anyone to have to experience either.

    I've operated Acrophobia and I'll tell you that being stranded on that ride is uncomfortable, no matter where you are. I haven't been stuck at the top, but I have seen it happen several times while operating the ride. I have been stuck at the bottom and the reason it is uncomfortable is because the seats are still tilted forward and you're about five feet off the ground.

    I have however wanted to be on a coaster during a rollback. I think most of us would.
