In brief: Semicircular canals

Or the vestibular system are responsible for that.
The fluid in these "balance canals or tubes" gets disturbed and leads to that sensation. I do not like roller coasters. The descent is too steep, the motion too fast and the jerking is rough on the neck and vertebral arteries....
