Six Flags. Carowinds. Busch Gardens. Regardless of which big name amusement park you consider your ‘home’ park, it’s no question that roller coasters can be truly mind-blowing. Summertime is the prime season for roller coaster riding. Fear and adrenaline are obvious psychological ties to the thrill-seeking contraptions, but roller coasters also bring mind-blowing fun. Whether you’re a standard amusement park goer or were involved in promotional material for the park similar to our podcast guest, you can relate to the experiences told in this week’s episode. Listen in as Shrink Tank contributors, Dr. Craig Pohlman and Dr. Kristin Daley as they reflect on their favorite amusement park memories, the psychology behind the experience and some of their favorite roller coasters.
