Riding the Claw

The kids rode this thing three times.

Me, I just watched.

I used to be quite the thrill seeker when it came to rides like this, but the older I get, the more prone to motion sickness I am. I’m actually a bit pathetic these days. :-p


  1. OK, now I can tell you’re getting…. old. yep. the Big 40 can’t be too far off. No thrill seeking rides at the Fair?! “More” prone to motion sickness?!! oy vey.

  2. Hmm.. great reading and i am quite impressed with the post. I have heard about the ride but never had an experience to ride it, now i am planning to have a ride on it and thank you for such a nice pictures that you have posted in your post….

  3. Oh boy, I’m getting a bit of nausea just looking at this. I’ve never been able to handle the “spinning” rides.

    That looks like a lot of fun to me. My wife HATES roller coaster stuff or any other amusement park rides that fling you around. I usually have to go with the guys if I want to do an amusement park.

  5. That ride really scares me so much. Just by looking at it, my imagination wants to scream so loud and it makes me feel that if I am one of them riding on that Claw I will be thrown away on my seat anytime. But I am still open on trying riding that one…. One day if I am ready. :)

  6. I really like your post and the pictures are impressive and it seems that you are also a big fan of rides like me. I haven’t tried it yet but i will going to ride on it. Thanks for letting us know about the ride……

  15. I need to find a ride like that. It looks like a blast!

  16. Looking at this already makes me sick. I used to be good with rides, but as I got older, I’m a watcher too. Great photo opp though :)
