Full disclosure: I’m no longer a fan of amusement parks. It’s probably because of the inner ear thing I remember laughing at when I was younger and didn’t have to worry about the inner ear thing, but today? OMG.

Roller coasters? Barf.

Anything that spins in a circle? Barf.

Heights? Cry then barf.

Unfortunately, my kids are only growing fonder of our trips to amusement parks. But no worries: I just invite their friends and politely excuse myself from riding all the things. There are a ton of amusement parks within driving distance from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, which means we pack the car full of excited riders and I’m off the hook. SCORE!
