I have never been the biggest fan of ferris wheels. I think they are beautiful to look at, but being on them makes me very anxious. This is weird because growing up I used to love fast rides, and I have always been a fan of heights. I love getting high up somewhere and seeing the views.
But ferris wheels? No thank you!
I think maybe it’s because how slow it goes, I can feel my stomach move up and down inside me. Who knows really.
This day I was at the Luna Park in Melbourne Australia.
The first time I heard of Luna Park was in the Mary-Kate and Ashley movie “Our lips are sealed” and they have a day date with these two guys who take them to the Luna Park in Sydney while it’s closed and they just have an incredibly fun day.
When I moved to Melbourne I knew Luna Park was somewhere that I needed to check out for myself.
To be honest I wasn’t overly impressed. I think I was just too grown up for it now.
But I was very attracted to the look of the ferris wheel. I didn’t go on any rides whenever I went to the park, but just wandering around, snacking on churros and watching the rides was always fun.
I took this photo while there on my first trip with some new friends.
I like the angle of this photo, as to me it makes the ride look more fun and peaceful, and I like the symmetry.
I always try to go on ferris wheel’s when I can, hoping to get over the fear. As of yet it has not worked, but maybe one day.
Do you like going on rides?
Ever been to Luna Park?
