Husband was in a car accident 3 years ago, and had his aorta separate from his heart. They put in a stent, and we're making a trip to Disney world this year. I was curious to see if he could ride anything with our sons and still be safe. Thanks for any help!
I agree with flycaster because negative/positive G's can cause quite an increased pressure in the aorta. I know rides are not the same as turning or pulling out of a dive in an F-16 fighter jet, but some rides do produce considerable G's.
