    Re: Wild ride

    Rather depends on the context in which you found it. It could be a wild ride in a fairground, a wild ride on a horse, a wild ride metaphorically in that you are being forced to do something without knowing what will happen.

    Re: Wild ride

    It could also be an idiom similar to 'being taken for a ride'.
    Eg. taken advantage of.
