An Engineer Explains All the Different Kinds of Rollercoasters

In this video, rollercoaster engineer Korey Kiepert talks about all the different types of rollercoasters that you’ll see at an amusement park, including wooden, terrain, launched, hyper, out-and-back, and wild mouse coasters.

So, when we design a roller coaster, we’re trying to take something that’s very much driven by the same codes that would be used to design a building. And we’re working with those to create something that gives you the illusion that it’s daring and adventurous but, at the same time, it’s all very controlled.
