Roller Coaster [electronic resource]: Designing Thrill Rides From Start to Finish

4 Learning (Firm)
Format
Video; Computer Resource; Online Video; Online
Summary
This program travels to the home of Colossus-the world's first ten-inversion steel roller coaster-to reveal the physical, mechanical, and psychological forces that make the roller coaster the undisputed king of thrill rides. Concepting, computer-assisted track design, 3-D simulation, track construction, and car safety mechanisms are covered by some of the experts who know roller coasters best. The goal? Pulse-pounding speed and mind-blowing disorientation through the manipulation of potential and kinetic energy and plenty of positive and negative Gs.
