9 years ago, I was involved in a water accident where the boat I am in capsized, throwing me 8 feet into the sea. I was only 9 back then. 2 months ago, I was made to board another boat ride again, sending me into a fit of paranoia and hysteria. Yesterday, I battled Thalassophobia (fear of water travels) by getting myself into a recreational water ride called Crazy UFO. The ride lived up to its name! Ask me how, ask me why, ask me anything!
Crazy UFO isn't called "crazy" for nothing. Man, that was one hell of a water ride! It was similar to a banana boat, only stronger (LOL)-- only circular. You can check out the images below for references.
The ride didn't remove my phobia entirely, but the thrill and experience made me wanna ask for more!
Still wouldn't want to ride a boat when travelling, though. The feeling of being surrounded with nothing but water sets me off.
