Can your money and items fall out your pockets from rideing roller coaster rides?
What about when it gos sideways or upside down?
Did any of your items fall out of your pockets when you rode roller coasters?
What about other rides?

I've never lost anything on a coaster, but once when I was riding a free-fall ride in TX (The Texas Cliff Hanger), my barrette came out of my hair. I guess it went straight up and off the portion of hair it was holding, which would've been cool to see. Fortunately, it fell behind me in the cage, so I was able to get it back.

The cool thing to do on that ride was to put pennies on our knees and watch them float as high as the top of our heads when we were falling.

No, not for me. I don't ride roller coasters, or anything, too scary :eek:

You can definitely lose things on amusement park rides. I think the latest death at an amusement park, somebody lost something, so they climbed the fence (that you're not supposed to) to go get it, then got hit by the roller coaster. Died instantly.

Yeah, I saw that. Those "DANGER!! KEEP OUT!!!" signs aren't just for looks.

Too cool! I am going to try that the next time I go on the Detonator at Worlds of Fun!

It was really cool. Pretty nifty physics experiment. ;)

I make sure to wear clothes with pockets that close properly when I go to a theme park. I love roller coasters :spin:
