Drive In Rollercoaster

Because 'Merica
  [vote for,

Americans love Drive-Ins.

GROGco Introduces the worlds first Drive In Rollercoaster, where you can enjoy the ride from the comfort of your personal vehicle.

For the safety of the carnival goers below, it is recommended that pickup truck owners tie down all tool boxes, anvils, refrigerators, hay bales, family pets, ant farms, and spare engine blocks, as the loop-de-loops on the rollercoaster tend to clean out the truck beds rather effectively.

Me and my piper back in the late 1890's http://home.iwichit...vhist/ppr/piper.htm

       A borrowed multi point harnesses that clips into the standard ones, might help the adventurous.

       Being thrown around the interior of your vehicle like a pea in a drum is part of the fun experience, shirley ?   

       Closing the windows would probably be a good thing, though.

       Well, it certainly would be didactic.

       The good news and the bad news is that this may well be your best invention ever, [Grog].   

MaxwellBuchanan, Jul 16 2017

       "...best invention ever..."   

       A Dubious Distinction Indeed, [Max]!   

       Shirley, this (slightly out of context) snippet shall figure prominently in the advertising literature to follow, along with "...fun experience..." and "...a good thing..."

       + but what about the gasoline?   

       Years ago in pilot training I was taught that one should not overturn the piper plane. But then my instructor (who was a POW in the Yom Kippur war and therefore not allowed to fly in actual military missions) made a 360 overturned "buzz". I yelled with glee, and asked if he wasn't afraid of the gasoline falling out. Not at that G, he said.

       Yes, a PA-28 can be barrel-rolled, as can many aircraft, if the pilot has sufficient skill to maintain 1-g throughout the manoeuvre; the wing tanks have simple dip-tube pickups, and rely on the fuel staying at the bottom, under gravity. But the airframe isn't rated as aerobatic, and you need a fair bit of height to do it safely.   

       Even a Boeing 707 can be barrel-rolled; there's a short segment if movie somewhere showing it being done, by a test pilot.

       The gasoline pouring out of a poorly capped fuel tank is a small price to pay for the luxury and comfort of projectile vomiting in a well equipped sedan.

       The author in [pashute]'s link is identified as "R. Harris". But I'm not making any joystick or cockpit jokes.

       This was good enough to prompt a click on the Grogster link to review your previous work.   

       I'll get back to you with my findings.

       These exist. They are called race tracks. A good race track can have as many turns and ups and downs as a roller coaster. And you are in control, at least partially.
farble, Jul 17 2017

       If you're in control you're not going fast enough...

       Just use the channel tunnel. It already does this.
