Most roller coasters try to keep regurgitating riders to a minimum. But with this coaster by BRC Imagination Arts, queasy patrons may be inevitable. The design firm has taken a cue from NASA's KC-135A "Vomit Comet" aircraft and drafted plans for a coaster that mimics microgravity for up to nine seconds. The only downside? Such a ride costs a pretty penny.
BRC's plans for this earthbound weightlessness simulator include waterproof interiors (for easy clean up of half-digested cotton candy) and the possibility of including tiny balls and glasses of fluid, so guests can visualize their precious seconds of faux-microgravity. If they just filled this coaster with cats and filmed it, this project would fund itself. Here's how Popular Science broke down BRC's proposal:
