Most people avoid taking medication for these situations, since they consider an amusement park ride a once in a while activity, especially the electric power bumper boats. Also, the sleep-inducing effect of many over the counter medications dissuades a lot of people from using such drugs.
What Really Happens During a Ride
Amusement rides challenge our balance system to the maximum. They not only unsettle the gravitational pull on our body but many times, while in 'free-fall', they can eliminate the feeling of a gravitational pull completely. Such physical challenges upset the delicate balance system that exists in our inner ears and can induces symptoms like motion related dizziness, nausea or vertigo.
Medically, motion sickness on amusement park rides occurs at the mental level when the impulses from the various senses [ears, eyes, feet] are mismatched in the brain. The result is vertigo and dizziness, which can cause the symptoms of motion sickness.
In our everyday environment, our eyes see stationary furniture or pillars. However, in the case of amusement park rides in http://bestonbumperboats.com/electric-bumper-boats-for-sale/, we see moving pillars, moving chairs as we view the environment around us from an unusual perspective. This motion can result in the experience of dizziness of the viewer as the impulses from the senses are mismatched in the brain.
Amusement Ride Sickness: Cures and Tricks
There are many over the counter and prescription drugs as well as herbal remedies that can help decrease the intensity of amusement ride related motion sickness. A few of them include:
