When in doubt, hold off on the activity. Some roller coasters are brutal on the intravenous pressure and the G-forces on the face. This could stir up some bleeding and extend the bruising. Why take a chance after you have come through the surgery and are looking so good?!
Yes, I would not recommend this.

Going on a rollercoaster 3 weeks after eyelid surgery should not affect your results. Changes in air pressure are more extreme on airplanes than rollercoasters and I tell my patients that they can fly a week after surgery and have not had any problems. You should be just fine.
