Title:
Make Tracks
Description:
Design a roller coaster and then climb aboard
and see how it rides! You can watch the ride
from right above the car itself or, if your
stomach isn't up to that, from a fixed position
away from the track. You'll get a continuous
readout of the coaster speed and acceleration.
