Students make vertical wooden roller coaster track

“Rush 2010 featured EC’s first fully vertical wooden roller coaster track. The Reverse Cowgirl, designed by Mike Nawrot ’12 and Romain Teil ’11 dropped its riders vertically, then turned them face down as they skimmed 2 feet above the ground, face down and strapped with their backs to the cart, before bringing them back to vertical upside-down.”

    I´m inspired, but I hope that my children never find a picture of the wooden roller coaster track on the Internet. But they will require them certainly from me, that I also build such a road for them and put up them in the garden. My woman would for it tear off my head or separate from me.
