it would have to be short and pretty tame, i'm not sure you'd definately die, i'm also not sure it's that good an idea, it was kinda off the cuff.

This was many years ago, but I swear I once saw a roller coaster documentary, where the cars were flipped on a special track piece in the station, before proceeding out and up the lift hill.
Apparent it didn't last long before it was closed down. Although this was so long ago I could be imagining it  :-k

Gyro balls instead of cars on the track.

A free spinning ball on a gyroscope...any time the track inverts it sends the ball spinning in a different direction.

I like the idea of having brakes for each ball so you can slow down the spinning of the ball if you choose to do so.

I got the idea from those maintenance cars they have for rollercoasters...

imagine a whole train of those

that's a cool idea, I wonder how doable that is. I guess..maybe, you have to be careful not to yank the gyroball (should curves cause the gyroball to suddenly go to its "resting place") Maybe it can't go too fast before considerable curves!

Standing spinning?

Separate dropping coaster-basicly TH13TEEN but each set of 4 people drop individually and then carry on as one train

Track jumper-probley will never happen due to health and safety but it would be cool to just launch off the track a land back on the other side

Loop holder-on a certain loop the car slows down and is held in place at the very top of the loop and mabey the car would also would rock back and forth at the top

I had an idea for this once where basically the train would start with 2 tracks one on top and the other on bottom then during the ride it could make the illusion of jumping , a bunny hop ,simply take away the track on top for the airtime to make it look from POV of rider as if flying and then putting it back on when you reach the end of the airtime, bunny hop. With the right light effect ( could be in door) this could work really well

Perhaps 2 stations so you have to ride it twice to complete the track perhaps inter-looping with other coasters perhaps looping round and through Nemesis and  Air interacting with them both perhaps with a large underground section or underground loop!

Inverted Launch.

A Coaster Theme about your on-comming demise (Hmm Oblivion?) where cars vanish into a pit (hmm). The difference is that there are 'two stations'. Visitors exit beneath the ground. Then the empty car is dragged/launches up above ground to give the impression that the riders vanished. I think that would creep out first time riders.

Can Inverted Swinging Coasters have inverting elements?

Maybe not a Worlds First, but The coaster with the highest throughput ever.

Designed with a break system on each train, that can stop if they come in close proximity to the next car on the track.  Probably quite a few years off for that kind of technology though I suppose...

There are not many stand up rollercoasters around so maybe there is scope for a "worlds first or world beating stand up.........coaster"?

For the world beating catergory it would have to be the fastest, longest, tallest or have the most inversions.

For a worlds first maybe look at floorless, backwards or vertical drop standing coaster (if these haven't been done already)

Just an idea!!!

Surely that would crush your ribs?

I must admit i like the idea that was floating around were one coaster uses both sides of the track.
