Maximum age requirements on coasters are uncommon, so make sure your body can take the stress. Rides are more intense than ever, and the worry about older riders comes from changes in their blood pressure and heart conduction, especially from all the pushing and pulling of the new rides.
Other health concerns arise from pregnancy, aneurysms and recent surgeries. Some parks now put up signs to remind people of these conditions.
Furthermore, motion sickness sensitivity tends to decline with age. However, if you're worried, try shorter rides and avoid junk food before boarding and enjoy the ride.
