Psychedelic Roller coaster

It be great that they do a roller coaster that would make you feel as if you were diving in a fractal swirl. This could be made by projecting certain images from every angle making symmetrical illusions of different kinds. SO if they did it right it would look like travelling in some kind of hi fidelity kaleidoscope. And I am sure there are other effects you can apply. The thing here would be to make it mind blowing with out any cheesiness. Hey maybe add some psychedelic trance to the experience and it could be cool.

Deepest Fractal Zoom http://www.sonic.net/~jot/ufvp.html
Check out "Universe 3" down the page. Not the highest res, but easily the deepest zoom I've seen. [wagster, Mar 28 2005]

       Seeing as how fractals have infinite perimeter, it could be a long ride.

       This is a cool idea. fractal zoom. zoetrope. hendrix star spangled banner.

       Long fractal zooms are one of the few real challenges left in computing power. I don't know what the longest one ever rendered is - anyone have a clue? Nice idea by the way.

       The acceleration on the corners would be infinite.
