Ronald Valentine Toomer was born in 1930 and died in 2011. He is credited with building 93 roller coasters around the world. “He graduated from the University of Nevada, Reno in 1961 with a degree in mechanical engineering and was a part of the design team responsible for the Apollo spacecraft heat shield.

Toomer was made vice president and manager of engineering. In 1986, 13 of the company's American officers negotiated a buyout, and formed Arrow Dynamics to which Toomer was named president.” In 1993 he was promoted to chairman

One summer day my friend, family, and I traveled to Carowinds.sAs we embarked on our vacation, we soon discovered that the trip was extremely lengthy. Upon arrival at the park, we heard the shouting of the kids as they were enjoying the rides.cx After entering the park we darted towards the largest roller coaster there. The first problem we encountered was our fear of riding roller coasters.cdWe began to feel the thrill as we went down the first ramp and no longer had fear. The best part about the whole day was experiencing the thrill as you enjoyed the ride. Finally, we ended the day by eating out and traveling home.
The Disney World Resort has a massive size and is composed of four theme parks and two water parks. Due to Disney World’s massive size, the resort takes many more days to achieve the Disney experience and families must choose some attractions to not visit. While some people think that Disney World is impossible to navigate, it provides a complimentary transportation system to get from park to park and getting between theme parks and resorts. Disney World is also able to offer a wider variety and more attractions to experience than Disneyland. Also, Disney World has greater potential for expansion. As Walt Disney stated, “We keep moving forward, opening new doors, and doing new things…” In the upcoming years, Disney World is pursuing additions to the park and the Imagineers are currently constructing The Land of Avatar, Star Wars Land, and Toy Story Land. For families who have the time to explore the massive park and want a wide variety of Disney experiences, Disney World is the wiser
In this section of the advertisement we will talk about the rides safety features and launch type. This ride will use a launch type using magnets to launch the roller coaster and to pull the roller coaster on the
Also,we went to the restroom, bought some food passes got and some maps. Then it was the fun part, so I thought. What we didn’t realize is that the line for the Top Thrill Dragster was 2 ½ hours! Therefor, my mom left the line at about two hours into it. But my dad, sister and I fought through the burning sun and heat. Just when we got up close to the front my heart started beating a mile a minute. I was scared, I wanted to go back and not do this. Though I knew waiting 2 ½ hours couldn’t be for nothing so I rode the coaster. It was extremely fun and fast. I loved
Over the years, six flags went from being top 50 places to visit, to becoming on the top 20 list of the places to visit in America. I been to six flags many times in my life. Over the past years, they been improving a lot. More people are visiting six flags every year because of the improvements they made through the year. They provide the most needs to the customers. My first time going to six flags was not that great because they did not have many rides that I could choice from, but recently, I went back to six flags and they had doubled their rides for any ages. I was shocked about that because that’s a big improvement that would help them bring in more family friendlies. Six Flags is the biggest collection of commercially operated rides, games and other entertainment attractions.
I have always been petrified of heights. This dates all the way back to when I would peer off the edge of the enormous playset in my backyard as a kid. Looking over the breezy, towering side, hands clammy, and mouth dry, it would send shivers down my spine. Growing older the similar feeling occured when being suspended high up in the air. I hope for one day to overcome this fear. The opportunity finally revealed itself in the summer of 2017. I would soon change my perspective.
The goal of this group project was to design and build an original paper model marble roller coaster that must be able to transport a marble from start to finish without interruptions. The design had to be unique and thrilling but safe; and the marble must come to a complete stop at the end of the roller coaster. The track should have the following components: at least two hills, one loop and one turn, and if possible a jump.
Cedar Point is known for some of their famous rides. The most famous ride at Cedar Point is Millennium Force. When it opened it broke 10 world records. But there are many more rides that are famous like Top Thrill Dragster, Magnum XL 200, Maverick, Gemini, Gatekeeper, Wicked Twister, Raptor, The Cyclone, and Mean Streak. Top Thrill Dragster and Gemini both opened as the tallest and fastest in the world when they opened. Gatekeeper opened as the first one of its kind. When Maverick opens it won the award of the best new ride. Magnum XL 200 was the first Hyper Coaster to ever open and topped 200 ft. Wicked Twister is a launch coaster that spins you on both sides. Raptor was the tallest and fastest inverted coaster when it opened. The Cyclone changed the park into what it is today which its size. Mean Streak change the park forever when it opened.

St. Patrick’s Day is an Irish cultural/religious celebration, and because of this you just never know what to expect. Here is what may happen to you this St. Patrick’s Day,
Have you ever experienced a hurricane on the sea before? Did you ever wonder what a hurricane is like on the ocean? Well, if you want to find out, come to Hershey Park to try our new amusement park ride called “Hurricane of the Sea!” When you ride the amusement park ride, you will be soaked in water as you go, giving off the traits of the hurricane on the sea while going about 65 to 70 miles per hour average speed on the roller coaster ride. Why did we call this “Hurricane of the Sea” you ask? Well, because there’s water that will splash you as you go around the tracks of the coaster. And also, there are plenty of twists, turns, and loops for you to enjoy while on the ride. The ride will get you wet, of course, so make sure you bring some swimsuits with you and be prepared to experience a hurricane first handed!
Cedar Point is home to the tallest roller coaster in the world, the Top-Thrill Dragster. This monster is 420 feet tall and reaches speeds of 120 mph, that’s 190 feet taller than Kings Island’s ride and 40 mph faster. In just over three seconds
Looking for a thrill? Well, come on down to the Mystical Amusement park on 25th Street. We have plenty of fun rides and attractions. If you and your family are looking for the most possible amount of fun, then ride The Mockingjay. As a matter of fact, this coaster is based on The Hunger Games. Hunger games is a book and movie series where the community has their citizens fight to the death. For that reason, I wanted to create that in my roller coaster. Likewise, I added holograms to shoot at the riders while they zoom through the coaster. As a result, it is rated 5/5 stars and is everything you want in a roller coaster. With it 's hydraulic launch system, hologram shooters, and suspenseful thrills, this is by far the most exhilarating ride you will ever ride.
Have you ever wanted to ride horses, but didn’t have the guts to? Luckily, I have a solution for anyone who longs to feel the silky fur of a beautiful stallion; go ride the Swift Horse Racer! Technology has enhanced every element of the way the Swift Horse Racer was designed. The entrance has some jockeys and horses, and you will feel as though you are gliding across a grassland on a swift horse for 90 meters. Once you sit in your seat and fasten your seat belt, the gate will open. BOOM! A gun shot will shoot off, and you 're on the go, as the Swift Horse Racer uses the work of a hydraulic launch system. A catch-car connects to the bottom of the cart train, and a vast winch winds the cable when it’s turned by a motor. To start, the cable pulls it down the track, then in a few seconds the catch car releases the carts and the roller coaster zips up the first hill. Once the roller coaster is animated, it will not stop until the brakes are applied at the end of the ride. This follows Newton 's First Law of Motion, or the Law of Inertia. Newton’s First Law states that, an object in motion will stay in motion, and an object at rest will stay at rest, unless acted on by an unbalanced force. That means the roller coaster will stay at a constant speed and have inertia until another force, that is unequal, makes it change its velocity. When an object has balanced forces, it will stay at a constant velocity. On the Swift Horse Racer, the first hill is the most gargantuan. The greatest potential energy is at the top of the hill, but as you glide down the hill in freefall, the potential energy transforms into mostly kinetic energy. However, the coaster can not have more energy than what it initially started with (as
