Me too - during a long university summer break I worked at an American themepark, after two near fatal accidents on the roller-coaster in the park I haven't been able to set foot on one.

The American undercover journalists were pretty easy to spot and it was very easy not spilling the beans to them.

Never got on with them as a child and used to get bad car sick.........now diagnosed with Ménière's disease after suffering on and off since 94 they are a no no as even the slightest fast movement with my head can bring it on, but i can go months without an attack :D
