Roller coasters are popular amusement park rides built with elevated railroad tracks and one or more cars. Roller coasters carry passengers along a track through steep slopes, tight turns, and sudden speed changes to offer them thrill rides. To some people, roller coasters are scream machines because passengers are usually screaming while enjoying a ride.
There are three main types of roller coasters which include; wooden roller coasters, steel roller coasters, and hybrid roller coasters. Steel roller coasters are known for their tubular steel tracks that have the ability to flip riders upside-down. On the other hand, wooden roller coasters have tracks like flat steel tracks, i-box tracks, and topper tracks.
The flat steel tracks of the wooden roller coaster can produce flight time through negative g-forces which they acquire as the cars accelerate downwards after reaching a peak point. The hybrid roller coaster is made from a combination of both steel and wooden roller coaster elements. Typically, hybrid roller coasters have steel tracks and wooden support structures. Other types of roller coasters are classified by train type, track layout, height, and mechanics. Shuttle roller coasters are also a type of roller coaster, but they don't have a complete track circuit. Shuttle roller coasters carry out a to-and-fro movement throughout its course. Modern roller coasters have undergone many structural changes to improve their safety, ride comfort, and design.
