My family is getting ready to leave to go to WDW next weekend... my cousin broke his arm and hurt his shoulder last month. He had surgery two weeks ago and he does not have to wear a sling anymore.
I know that he would love to go on this ride but I was wondering how rough it really is. The current plan is to have me sit on one side and my dad on the other so that he will not get bumped or anything. Is the ride more jerky then being in a normal car when someone pulls out in front of you or something?
Definately ask the surgeon, we had to do that last year for my mom, because she had rotor cuff surgery about a month before our trip, and she was still having problems with it, she could go on the tame rides, and do swimming only. Its better to be safe than sorry

I remember it being rather bumpy. I personally don't think I would want to ride it with a bum shoulder. After you've been to the World and he's ridden other things you'll have a better idea of his motion tolerance (for lack of a better term).
I'd suggest having someone in your group go through the single rider line first and report back to get an accurate assessment and let him make a more intelligent decision.
Having had my fair share of injuries (And some other peoples share to) the best advice I was ever given was... "If it hurts stop doing it". I know it sounds silly but my advice would be to slowly build up to it on some slower rides. If all seems find then give Test Track a go. Basically let your body talk to you and listen to what it says
... I wish I listened to my own advice when I was younger. I imagine a lot of injurieswould have healed a lot quicker if I had.
Thanks everyone... we are are going to think about it but he will probably go as he loves cars if it bothers him then we will limit other rides but that is really the only questionable ride that he wants to go on...
Now, from the other side of the fence...We found this to be a rather tame ride. Even my DM would have been able to go on this w/ her bad heart (Though she was just too Poohped to try). Anywho, there's my two cents worth.

I was just on this ride last week and it was bumpier in spots than I remembered it to be. Yes, it is jerkier than a normal car ride and there are swerves and stops that you don't face in a normal car ride. He may want to avoid this ride this trip.
