Top 10 Theme Park Rides that Cause the Worst Motion Sickness

Don't go on any of these rides with a full stomach!
The Top Ten
1 The Simpsons Ride (Universal Studios)

Mission: Space may be notorious for being incredibly motion-sickness-inducing, but at least it doesn't completely jerk you around like this thing does!

Not only made me nauseous, but induced a full-blown panic attack. Very jerky and claustrophobic.

Don't usually get motion sickness, but this one got to me. Please avoid if you get sick easily.

2 Mission: Space (Epcot) Mission: Space is a centrifugal motion simulator thrill ride at Epcot in Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, Florida.

Mission: Space Orange Version, to be exact. I have never ridden this ride without feeling at least a little nauseous afterward. Even with the addition of the much milder Green Version, which doesn't spin, the controversy over the original ride and its intensity has turned many people off.

I went on the Orange ride, and then my stomach hurt when I got off. I vomited the next morning at the hotel, but I recovered not long after that.

3 Despicable Me: Minion Mayhem (Universal Studios)

Going into this ride, you probably wouldn't think it would be all that bad. Haha... WRONG!

4 Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit (Universal Studios)

Another great ride, but it's definitely not the kindest to your body.

Jerky and headache-inducing. I don't see how it got so popular.

5 Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey (Islands of Adventure)

Incredible ride, but wow, does it make you feel sick afterward.

Yeah. I was stumbling after that ride. I had to hold on to the rail. Love the ride, though.

6 Transformers: The Ride (Universal Studios)
7 Star Tours (Disney's Hollywood Studios) Star Tours was a motion simulator attraction at several Disney theme parks, based on the successful Star Wars film series created by George Lucas.
8 Dinosaur (Disney's Animal Kingdom)
9 Harry Potter and the Escape From Gringotts (Universal Studios)

Ugh! Have you ever felt like you wanted to throw up but couldn't? That was me after this ride.

10 The Incredible Hulk (Islands of Adventure)

I didn't want to go on this one, but I saw it, and I got dizzy just watching it.

The Contenders
11 Mad Tea Party (Magic Kingdom)

UGH! My vision was affected for the rest of the week.

Or any spinning teacups ride, for that matter.

12 Race Through New York Starring Jimmy Fallon (Universal Studios Florida)

A lot of people staggered off this ride, and a few even threw up.

Wow... This one made me throw up, but it was really fun.

13 Saw (Thorpe Park)
14 The Smiler (Alton Towers)
15 Steel Vengeance (Cedar Point)
16 Primeval Whirl (Disney's Animal Kingdom)
17 Hyperspace Mountain (Disneyland Paris)

It's in the dark, contains three loops, and it's rather long. I got sick after riding it.

18 Manta (SeaWorld Orlando)

You face your stomach and head toward the ground, going through a pretzel loop, many twists and turns, and a corkscrew.

The loop at the beginning is especially intense, and combined with the "flying" position, it is enough to make some people motion sick.

19 Mako (SeaWorld Orlando)

A 200' B&M hypercoaster that involves lots of hills and twists where you go at 73 mph. It's the tallest, longest, and fastest roller coaster in Orlando, and the seating only includes a lap bar. The ride relies heavily on airtime, so think twice before going. You might get sick.

20 Typhoon (Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk)

I got nauseous after riding this, but it was so worth it! No, I didn't throw up afterward. I have a strong stomach!

21 Top Thrill Dragster (Cedar Point)
22 Cranium Shaker (Diary of a Wimpy Kid)
23 Millennium Force (Cedar Point)
24 Body Wars - Epcot (1989-2007)
25 Colossus (Thorpe Park)
