NOVA: ROLLER COASTER.

VHS_NovaRollerCoaster[VHS: WGBH Educational Foundation – 1993 – 56 mins]. We begin by exploring roller coasters and the physics behind how they work. Later we are taken on a behind the scenes tour of Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean as well as Universal Studios’ Earthquake ride; Backdraft and Back to the Future immersive ride experiences. We’re also afforded a sneak peek at Virtual Reality simulations and are guided through these scenes by the people who design, build and operate these systems of entertainment. ANDY SHINE SAYS: Features plenty of interesting ride footage, but spends too long on Virtual Reality systems. ANDY SHINE’S RATING: Fair.
