We went on vacation last week and while DS didn't want to go on many of the kiddie rides except for the car ones, he did want to go on the log ride with DH. That was very surprising as he has sensory issues. He liked the ride so much that he cried when he couldn't go on it again. He even went on the merry-go-round that he wouldn't go on last year. He didn't want to ride one of the horses but sat on one of the benches they have on the ride.
Rides are just one of those things that kids have to progress into on their own. Our oldest is a bit risk adverse and was much more hesitant than her siblings in regards to fast rides and big slides. About the time she hit 1st grade everything changed though and she began to open up and became more willing to give the "unknown" a shot. Eve at that point though I can remember her making DS, who is 2 years younger, try everything first before she would do it. He was 2.5 happily riding on the Matterhorn and she was close to 5 and absolutely screaming the entire ride.
