My theory, Mike, is that amusement parks allow people to experience the kinds of things - in a passive manner - that they otherwise would not be able to experience in their sedentary lifestyles.

And if you never have, you can get your jollies off with aspects of it that you think are the real thing. But most people would rather not go there - for good reason. Once you have, then you know all the other stuff borders on martial masturbation.
I'd rather drive a race car, do ukemi, or jump out of a plane with parachute on my back. But if you can't or you won't, well... These rides would probably be the best adrenaline surge for the money.
