Imagine a roller coaster that did all the normal things, but then,
early in the ride, dropped down one of the steep early drops, down
into an opening into a tunnel in the ground. OK! That's already
done! But, a little way into the tunnel, you look ahead and see
that the tunnel ends in a solid wall of rock!|
Sounds pretty dangerous, huh? It actually isn't! I can PROVE that this WALL-IMPACT ROLLER COASTER is absolutely as safe as any that are presently operating in amusement parks!
From a business perspective, imagine how popular (and profitable) that ride would be! So, why hasn't anyone built such a thing? Because no one has figured out a way to do it and make it absolutely safe!
I actually invented this in June 1999. Since I had run into "brick walls" (pun intended!) in trying to get amusement park operators' attention about my earlier JUMPING roller coaster, I haven't even approached any of them with this invention. I don't see anybody else with a Roller Coaster that crashes headlong into a wall!
The other reason why I am not going to disclose all the secrets of how it would work here is related to the way I was treated when I went to the trouble of offering those amusement park operators my new and unique (40-feet) JUMPING Roller Coaster attraction that would CERTAINLY have made them huge amounts of money. If they, or anyone else, has interest in building EITHER the Wall-crashing Roller Coaster OR the Jumping Roller Coaster, THEY can now come to ME! Seems fair!
If they choose not to, let THEM try to figure out how to do it safely. I don't think they can! But that would be their choice!
For you roller coaster riders who would crave a new and unique experience, I guess you'll have to wait for now!
