Roller Coasters: The Art and the Science (Part 1 - The Art)

Monday, Jul 14 7:00p to 8:30p
Monroeville Public Library Monroeville, PA

This presentation reveals the tools and the 'designer's palette' that coaster designers use to deliver the thrill ride. We'll take a look at layout classifications, wood vs. steel, track design, rolling stock, inverting and non-inverting track elements, rider posture, and how coasters are built. We'll discuss some of the advanced launch techniques used to get things started, review notable coasters past and present, and discuss world record holders. Coaster videos begin at 6:30, so come early!
