I also had another recurrent nightmare.
Me and my family were walking towards some theme park and, to get there, we would have to walk upwards one of those swirly roads typical of parking buildings (or whatever they're called).
Most of the dream would be spent walking upwards.
At the end, we would see theme park, bright lights, fortune wheels and everything. All we had to do to get there is jump over a small ditch.
The ditch itself was very short, but it went very deep (all the distance we had climbed). Everyone jumped over it without problems, until it was my turn.
As I jumped, the ditch suddenly seemed longer than what I expected, and I'd fall to the pit. The vertigo always woke me up, and it'd feel as if I was being crushed against my bed afterwards.
