Parks are upping the fear factor this year with new coasters, flight simulators, and full-on vertical drops. (Bring your Pepto-Bismol.)

Nothing says summer like being whipped through the air at 60 miles per hour while screaming at the top of your lungs. With the onset of the hottest months and kids out of school, 110 new thrill rides have opened up in more than 70 parks across the country: flight simulators, elevated windjammers, vertical whirligigs, and good old-fashioned roller coasters. A sampling of America's newest, most hair-raising, and--put down that chili dog!--potentially nausea-inducing thrill-park offerings.
