Amusement Park Rides


Icon for Harmful Products and Activities  Harmful


It is recommended for pregnant women not to ride on roller coasters, thrill rides, virtual rides, or any other ride that involves spinning, fast or jerky movements. The concern is that the rapid starts and stops, along with jarring forces and pressures against the pregnant body during these types of rides, may be harmful to the fetus. Such activities create additional jarring forces within the uterus that may lead to placental abruption, which is a premature separation of the placenta from the uterus wall. The jarring force may also cause a miscarriage or other complications in pregnant women even when there is not direct trauma to the uterus. Updated: 04.16.21
