I recently got to check out the Scream Machines exhibit at Bishop Museum. The display has ended its run but I thought I’d share this photo. This is a 1/20th scale model of a theoretical roller coaster. It beings with a 14 story climb leading down to a whirlpool hill, two teardrop loops, a boomerang and a double corkscrew. It was a pretty cool exhibit exploring the science between roller coasters and giving you a chance to ride on a simulator or in a spin room. You could also create your own roller coasters and explore the impact of height, loops, speeds, curves and gravity.
