Devin Olson, creator of Coaster-Net has created another From Dreams to Screams documentary. A few years ago, I was blown away by his work on an excellent Outlaw Run documentary.
This time Olson focused on the most talked about roller coaster of the year, Fury 325 at Carowinds.
UPDATED: Here’s the full documentary:
I always love hearing about the creation process involved with building a new roller coaster. There’s so much that we don’t know about the “why” behind a ride’s placement, features, and elements. Here’s a taste of what I mean via an interview Olson did with Coaster 101 about the documentary:
Then there’s the specific planning process for the ride, which I always love hearing about. It’s always part function, part form; in example, the first turn was simply functional in order to get from the open land near Hurler to the open land at the front of the park, but then the bridge and entrance flyovers were specifically arranged to create a very psychological effect on arriving guests, much like the Gatekeeper effect up at Cedar Point that we touched on in our past installment of the series.
