Plot & Details

This IMAX documentary takes a fast-paced look at the history of traditional roller coasters and at their newest incarnation, a combination of motion pictures and motion simulators and computer animation designed to take riders on wild, realistic journeys through fantasy environments. The highlights of the film are the roller coaster excursions shot at Busch Gardens Theme Park in Tampa and at the Las Vegas Big Shot. There are also scenes of Nasa motion simulators, used for the training of astronauts.
