All parks: Never try to make a crying child go on a theme park ride. Vote

All parks: Never close your eyes when riding a roller coaster. That will just make you dizzier, as your eyes help your sense of balance adjust. Vote

All parks: Get a bit of motion sickness? Try Ginger Gum! It's natural and tasty, too. (Just don't chew them on rides.) Vote

All parks: Use parks' free package check services to store what you buy in the park and keep your hands free while you ride. Vote

I agree that you should think twice on putting your crying child on a ride, but my parents put us on some rides when we were kinda crying. Then again, we were not screaming:)
