What the Expert Says:

Dear Canpanita:

in your case, check with your doctor.  Some roller coasters might be dangerous for people with heart, brain and high blood pressure conditions.  Knowing in advance by checking Six Flags website may also give you information about what "they' consider the dangers to be.  Good luck.
