Many people enjoy riding rollercoasters - while others are petrified of them. Interestingly, it's not the actual ride which evokes fear - after all, everyone knows modern rollercoasters are very safe and secure. It's the imagining what will happen to you while you go through the twists, turns, the loops and the bends which is scary. This is why most young kids are fearless when sitting on coasters - their imagination isn't powerful enough ! This is exactly why some patients can breeze through a surgical operation, while others are petrified of the operation theater and dread every minute of it. Once you realise it's your mind which is playing games, you can also learn techniques to cope with this !
