Thanks for writing in.
It is very common to have palpitations due to heat. When we are exposed to heat, the blood pressure drops and the heart needs to pump faster and harder so that all our organs get enough blood supply. At this age, I seriously doubt something is wrong with your heart. You can go ahead with the roller coasters. Just remember to have plenty of fluids and use adequate sun protection.
Hope this helps.
