Manga/Anime Characters and Roller Coasters

Back to Manga General

How do you feel about roller coasters?
Love them! Always have, always will.
Used to love them, but don't care for them anymore.
Can't handle the ones with loops or corkscrews, but the others types are alright.
If it doesn't go upside-down or really fast, what's the point?
Can't stand them, they make me sick.
I'm afraid of heights!

It seems that in every manga I've read (or anime I've watched) where the characters go to a theme park, there's always a scene where the main character (male, since I mostly read shounen or seinen) is dragged onto the roller coaster and gets sick or scared out of his wits while the girl/girls in the group want to go again. It's a total cliche that I have yet to see play out differently in any of the manga/anime I've come across.

I'm a guy and I love roller coasters and most, if not all, of my friends love them too, so I have a hard time understanding why I never see a male manga/anime character enjoying roller coasters. That's why I created this poll. Am I in the minority when it comes to enjoying roller coasters? Maybe there are mangas (shoujo?) out there where the main character is not a total wimp or doesn't get motion sickness?

So how do you feel about roller coasters?
