For me it wasn't as bad as the Simpsons (Simpsons gets to me more than Star Tours) but I had taken a dramamine that morning so maybe that's why I thought it wasn't really that bad? It's not like Shrek though. If you're unsure you can use the non moving seats.

A little helper every day!

Those ride motion simulators - be they 3D or not, tend to leave me queasy. Because so many of the rides at USO/IOA rely on this type of technology, I need help to enjoy those parks.

I take Meclazine HCl every morning and sometimes after lunch. I found this product is available at WalMart, but you have to ask for it. Although it is treated as an over-the-counter medication, they keep it with the Pharmacy supplies. It is the generic form of Bonine, and is only one tenth the cost per tablet!

On a side note - I never have to take this at any of the Disney theme parks I have visited. Ride Motion Simulators have given me fits ever since my eardrums ruptured back in 1980.

Less Drowsy Dramamine is also meclazine. Walmart also sells a Walmart brand meclazine as well which is sold beside the Bonine and Less Drowsy Dramamine.

So, Damo, you have issues with motion sickness. As I get older, mine seems to get worse. I had the patch on a recent fairly rough cruise and did fine, except for the side effects (a little lethargy). I have never tried meds at the parks, but I'm going to experiment this fall. I know there are a lot of choices, but which do you use and do you take the whole dose?

Im going to jump in here and suggest Bonine brand. I suffer from bouts of severe vertigo... So bad that I am out of work for three to four days. It takes me about one month to truly feel better. After this last episode, i started to take a Bonine tablet daily and it worked wonderfully! No drowsy side effects and the nausea and dizziness are gone.

Thanks. I'm anxious to see how well it works for me.
