– Every company designing roller coasters has their own unique style, and rides across the world and even within one country can be really different in design.
– When the train is on top of the track, it has potential energy, and when it falls because of gravity, it transforms into kinetic energy. And this energy conversion keeps going as the train goes up and down on the track.
– Have you ever noticed the loop-the-loop is never a perfect circle, but looks more like an inverted teardrop? It’s not a design flaw, but a well thought-over choice.
– In fact, they do. In case something goes wrong, and emergencies can happen anywhere, the operators will have to hit the safety break. And the restraints won’t be able to protect someone below the minimum height requirements.
– There’s a famous roller coaster in Universal Studios Florida theme park that’s called Rip Ride Rockit. It offers its passengers on-ride video from cameras installed in every row, LED lighting and on-ride music!
– After Napoleon had been defeated at Waterloo, the Russian soldiers occupied Paris and must have brought the sliding tradition with them. This is how the great grandfather of modern roller coasters was born in 1817.
– The oldest roller coaster in the world that you can still ride was opened in Altoona, PA in 1901. It’s called Leap-The-Dips.
– Kingda Ka is currently the tallest roller coaster in the world. It is located in Six Flags Great Adventure in New Jersey and stands proud at 456 feet (139 m) tall. That’s taller than the Statue of Liberty at 305 feet (93 m).

    As a roller coaster enthusiast, I already knew all of this, but you explained this very well to someone that may not understand. This was certainly better than some clickbait "Five Deadliest Rolly Coasters Ever!!!!!" video. Good job!

    The baby shower bit at the beginning was an annoying waste of time. I hope you don't start making that a standard practice. I chose this video because I was interested in roller coasters, you know?

    Hey Bright Side, if you're going to copy content from my channel then you should probably make sure you actually get all of the technical details correct. Asking me for permission first would also be nice!
