Roller Coasters is a comprehensive list of the most influential
scream machines that drove the evolution of the modern roller
coaster. It's a new and interesting look at roller coaster history.
What makes a majority of the roller coasters listed in this book
even more impressive is the fact that they were designed using
pencil and paper rather than computers.
The groundbreaking scream machines
that shaped the evolution of the roller coaster made this list
because they were the first of their kind, crossed a threshold that
had never been broken before, or have some other historical or
cultural significance, such as:
- The first floorless coaster.
- The first to use lap bar
- The first to use Linear
- The first to have two hills
over 100 feet.
- The first modern wooden
coaster built in China.
- The first steel inverting
- The first to break 100mph.
- The biggest wooden coaster
- And much more!
