As always I’m no expert in this, it’s just a few ideas & ways I’ve found has helped me. I hope you guys enjoy and find this somewhat useful!
I found as much as I love boat rides now I had to start of with rides that are smaller in length. The darkness often was something which scared me a lot as well as the unknown. So I’d search through YouTube of the place I was visiting to find which indoor water ride had the shorter duration.
Sit In The Middle:
If your about to experience a boat ride that has multiple people to a row try and sit in the middle. I found whilst I was overcoming this fear with the likes of Pirates Adventure at Drayton Manor that sitting in the middle helped a lot. I almost felt protected by everyone around me.
Honestly the only reason I watch these now is because I’m still a little unsure of the unknown. Whether that’s a brand new dark ride I get anxious by the not knowing. So if your like me then I’d definitely recommend watching POVs.
Ride With Someone You Feel Safe With:
I feel for a lot of the fears we have riding and experiencing them with someone who you feel comfortable with is always helpful.
There’s a few ideas and things I’ve found helped me to overcome this fear.
