Sadly, my words of encouragement didn’t and she began hyperventilating again.

After a few seconds the man turned to us and said, “No hablo inglés.” I had to stop myself from laughing.
After that response, my sister started to cry, kick, and scream.
“Calm down!” I bellowed at her. I wanted to enjoy the ride, and I wouldn’t have been able to do that with her kicking and screaming the whole time. Finally, the rollercoaster started.
“Woo! Let’s get started!” I yelled.
