BUILDING THE BIGGEST: THE GREAT ROLLER-COASTER RACE.

DVD_BuildingTheBiggestGreatCoasterRace[DVD: Discovery Channel – 2005 – 44 mins]. Step on-board for the most adventurous wooden roller coasters ever built, as three parks battle it out and risk millions to build the biggest wooden roller coaster, pinning their hopes on the old adage “if we build it they will come.” See The Voyage (Holiday World, Indiana) under construction as the Secret Nine offer advice. The Unnamed roller coaster (Beech Bend Park, Kentucky) aims to be the US’s #1. And El Toro (Six Flags Great Adventure, New Jersey), but will it uphold the appeal of a traditionally-constructed woodie? (Narration is in English with optional Chinese and English subtitles). ANDY SHINE SAYS: A great documentary, but it ends with the naming of Beech Bend’s “Kentucky Rumbler” and fails to showcase any ride in its finished state! ANDY SHINE’S RATING: Good.
