How a Rollercoaster is Made!
All of my friends know that when it comes to Theme Parks, Fun Fairs, Carnivals, I'm always the one this is nagging them to come along... I love the rush, the white-knuckle thrill, and yes, even the tacky dance music and flashing light...
I came across a really interesting article on ThemePark Tourist, about Thorpe Park's plans to build a new rollercoaster, The Swarm. Set in a post apocolypitic setting, the £18 Million coaster is set to make its debut in 2012.
From initial coaster design, to posters, to the logo, to set decorations, like the crashed helicopters and ambulances, it really is a fascinating process to see how a rollercoaster comes to life.
