Design a rollercoaster challenge

For those of you who can access BBC iPlayer, last night’s episode of The Apprentice featured a rollercoaster design challenge.

It’s all kinds of fun — not least the incredible technology available to design and simulate rollercoaster concepts.

And a reminder that real thrill-seekers need to look beyond WDW (and even UOR) for best-in-class design.

I wish Sum of all Thrills was still at Epcot. My older son loved it and my younger son never go the opportunity.


That was an awesome attraction.

Didn’t you think the winning one looked a bit boring though?

Nice to see this - Thorpe Park is just down the road from us (~30min) but we have never been. May give it a look based on what we saw last night, certainly a step up in terms of coasters from even IoA!

I’ve never been either, I’d like to but it’s a bit of a trek from Manchester. We go to Alton Towers if anywhere.
