Roller Coaster

Dreaming about a roller coaster ride seems to symbolize the emotional ups and downs that a person is experiencing. Although this ride can be fun, it can also seem out-ofcontrol and even be a frightening experience. As a dream symbols it suggests that the dreamer may need to achieve greater emotional balance. The sever changes in mood and temperament are draining and unproductive and may be highlighted by the roller coaster dream. If the dream is feeling emotionally flat and apathetic, then this dreamer may be a form of compensation.
