A roller coaster is a type of amusement ride that employs a form of elevated railroad track designed with tight turns, steep slopes, and sometimes inversions.

People ride along the track in open cars, and the rides are often found in amusement parks and theme parks around the world.

Nowadays, roller coaster rides are some of the most popular rides you can find in an amusement park. With that in mind, we are always trying to find and build a bigger, faster, and more “dangerous” roller coaster ride.

What classifies a roller coaster as dangerous? Well, the more inversions there are, the more people are scared and intrigued by the ride. Another aspect is how high the fall is. The higher the roller coaster goes, the better.

This documentary takes a look at the process of building a roller coaster, but also describes some of the fastest rides in the world.
