roller coaster

roller coaster (British: roller coaster) Isamusement parkIs installed inAttractionIs a kind ofScreaming machineOne of the types of vehicles called (thrill ride).

in Japanroller coaster(Japanglish: jet coaster) Is often called. This is a name derived from accelerating like a jet injection, but in realityJet engineAre not used. Formerly Korakuen Yuenchi (Present:Tokyo Dome City Attractions) Derived from the name of the attraction that existed in.

Passengers on a roller coaster enjoy the play equipment by running at high speed on curved rails with steep slopes and angles, and sometimes making one revolution while enjoying the thrill of turning upside down.

How it works

In a roller coaster, there is basically no power in the train itself with passengers, and in general, a chain lift is used to wind the vehicle up to the highest point on the rail and run downhill from here.Potential energyThePhysical energyTurn to and increase speed. Then, when it falls to some extent, the slope is run up again to convert kinetic energy into potential energy. During this time, the kinetic energyfriction,Air resistanceSince it is attenuated by such factors, the summit is gradually placed at a lower position after the second mountain. By repeating this operation, the roller coaster went on, and finally the metal plate attached to the vehicle was installed on the rail.Brake padBetween them, causing friction, and mainly kinetic energyHeat energyTo release and stop.

These days, not the chainFlywheel,Linear motorIt is common to use compressed air or the like to appropriately add kinetic energy at the start or during running. By this method,catapultThe feeling of acceleration that is emitted by the conventional type and the unexpectedness of acceleration in the section that is not accelerated by the conventional type are produced, and it is also possible to produce a speed that can not be realized by the chain method.In addition, the chain method requires a fairly large-scale winding to increase the speed of the coaster, and the land and construction costs are also considerably enormous.In that respect as well, methods such as linear motors are advantageous.Regarding the brake system,electromagnet,permanent magnetUsingEddy currentIntroducing a non-contact type that generates noise, it has become possible to smoothly decelerate and stop, and to significantly reduce noise when the brakes are activated.

The roller coaster course has mountains, valley bottoms, and left and right curves.Centrifugal forceIt takes. Roller coasterspecAs the centrifugal force on the passengers重力 OfHeli TheG(Acceleration of gravity) May be expressed in multiples of that. thisPowerThe change in the roller coaster is one of the real pleasures of the roller coaster, and it is sometimes used to evaluate the ride quality in addition to the height and speed.However, the force exerted on the passengers is a burden on the body, soClothoid curveSuch asRelaxation curveTo shorten the time it takes a strong force,CantBy adding (tilt of rails) and dispersing centrifugal force in the lateral direction of passengers in the vertical direction, the influence of the force applied to passengers is adjusted to reduce the burden on the body.

in Japan,1959(Showa34 years) roller coasterBuilding Standards LawIt is now treated as a "workpiece", and safety standards and regular inspections are implemented based on laws and ministerial ordinances. What is treated as a "workpiece", that is, a building, and not treated as a vehicle, is that the passengers have the same boarding point and exit point, and the boarding and exit points are different. Is believed to be from.

There are many combinations of the following several elements.

Course structure
  • Camelback-the basic structure.Drive on a mountainous course, like the back of a camel.When crossing a mountain while maintaining speed, you can feel weightlessness (zero G), and the feeling of floating at this time is called "air time".This camelback that rotates the rail 360 degrees is called "Zero G Roll", and the one that reverses 180 degrees is called "Zero G Stall".
  • Cyclone-A structure that passes through the rail inside the structure that supports the rail. You can enjoy the thrill of hitting a structure.
  • Horizontal Loop / Helix-A high-speed horizontal turn of a spiral course with a cant attached. Some descend from top to bottom and some climb from bottom to top.
  • Vertical Loop-A structure that "rotates 360 degrees vertically" to make somersaults.A coaster that includes this vertical loop is called a loop coaster.
  • Corkscrew- Wine OfCorkscrewIt has a structure that "rotates 360 degrees in a spiral" like.
  • Mouse-As the name suggests, it moves like a mouse. 2 --Many small single-seater vehicles with a capacity of 4 people have curves without a cant.In some cases, there is a 360-degree vertical loop, or the vehicle rotates 360 degrees horizontally.
  • Wooden-Structures such as stanchions that hold rails are made of wood.Due to its unique appearance and creaking and bending due to the characteristics of wood, it has a unique vibration and floating feeling (air time) that is different from steel.Also, many of them run in a wooden frame.There is a growing tendency to replace hybrid coasters around the world, but many are still popular, such as The Adventurers'El Toro and Everland's T Express.In Japan, it was introduced all over the country, starting with "Jupiter" at Kijima Kogen Park.
  • Hybrid-A combination of steel and wood.The rails are made of wood and the stanchions are made of steel, or vice versa.The vibration is less than that of wood, but it is possible to create a complicated course structure that is impossible with wood.Outside Japan, construction work is underway to hybridize the existing wooden coaster (using steel for the rail and the columns in contact with it), and in Japan, the Nagashima Spa Land wooden coaster `` White Cyclone'' will be hybridized as `` Hakugei'' 2019 It opened on March 3, 28.
  • Bobsled-A half-piped course, like a bobsleigh.Since there is no rail to fix the vehicle, the feature is that the vehicle swings from side to side while driving on a curve.It was seen all over the world in the old days, but it is rarely newly created after 2000 due to reasons such as obstruction of visibility and difficulty in speeding up, and the number of operating vehicles is decreasing.
  • Racing-A type that allows two vehicles to run side by side.
  • Round Trip / Shuttle-Traveling back and forth on a course with large slopes at both ends.Also called boomerang outside Japan.
  • Single rail-Only one rail is in the state of a monorail, and the machine runs so as to cover it.While it is possible to take complicated rails, the speed is not so high.
Vehicle structure
  • Standing-Those that are fixed while standing on the ride. in JapanYomiuri Land,Washuzan HighlandSome examples.Magic Mountain's "Riddlers Revenge" is known outside Japan, but it has hardly been produced outside Japan since the fatal accident of Expoland's Fujin Raijin II.
  • Suspended-As the name suggests, the vehicle is suspended at the bottom of the rail, and the difference from the inverted one is that there is a scaffolding.So to speak, it's like a gondola.The seat is not fixed to the rail surface, and it is characterized by being swung left and right like a pendulum by centrifugal force on a curve.Therefore, there are no rotating elements such as vertical loops. It became popular outside Japan from 1981, and several units were in operation in Japan, but it was removed due to cost problems such as Everland's "Eagle Fortress" because the turnover rate is not good for the maintenance cost. There are many things.
  • Inverted-The name means "reverse" and is a type of vehicle suspended on rails that does not have a scaffolding.It's like a ski lift.Since the body is difficult to fix except for the limbs, it can withstand complicated rail structures, so it is easy to install loops and screws, and a unique gimmick called pretzel is also adopted.In Japan, there is an advantage that a small site can be effectively used, so from the 1990s, starting with "Diablo" in Himeji Central Park, Shima Spain Village ("Pyrenees"), Nasu Highland Park ("F2"), etc. Introduced in. Manufactured by B & M and Becoma, it seats four and two per row, respectively.In a narrow sense, it refers to the same model manufactured by B & M, and the one manufactured by Becoma is called SLC (suspended loop coaster).
  • Floorless-Developed by B & M.The rail is the same as the conventional type that exists underneath, but the foot is lost at the time of departure and the foot runs in a dangling state. Manufactured by Intamin in 1998 and introduced outside Japan, it has not been introduced in Japan and has not been introduced much because of the high capital investment cost outside Japan.On the other hand, coasters with a shape that raises the seats of ordinary coasters so that they do not get on their feet have been developed.
  • Flying-A seat that faces down at the time of departure and always runs prone.You can feel as if you are flying in the sky.Introduced in Universal Studios Japan and Nagashima Spa Land in Japan.It was once introduced at Fuji-Q Highland, but it was remodeled into a non-flying type due to a passenger fracture accident.
  • Diving-A thing that suddenly falls vertically after pausing while facing straight down at the top.The vehicle has seats for 8 to 10 people, and both ends are completely off the rails.Not introduced in Japan.
  • Motorbike-A motorcycle that straddles a vehicle in a forward leaning position and runs with the body fixed from the back.Due to the structure of the vehicle, there are no rotating elements such as loops.
  • Wing-A seat that sticks out of the rail, like a bird's wing.There is nothing blocking the view, and there is a feeling of openness.Although it has not been introduced in Japan, there is a four-dimensional type that is similar in ride shape, which will be described later, and Fuji-Q Highland's "Ee ja nai ka" is a similar shape.
  • 3D-A coaster developed by Arrow Dynamics of the United States.Regardless of the behavior of the rails, the seat itself has its own mechanically controlled rotational movement.As a result, it has become possible to perform movements that were not possible with any type of thing up to now.In addition, the four-dimensional is derived from the fact that the rotation of the seat is newly added as the fourth to the three-dimensional movement of the coaster that advances along the shape of the rail and moves up, down, left and right.However, since Arrow Dynamics went out of business in 4, only a few were manufactured, such as the Magic Mountain X2002.
  • New 4D / XNUMXD Spin-SwissInterminA coaster developed by S & S in the United States and S & S in the United States.Often referred to as a spin coaster to differentiate it from a four-dimensional coaster.In the fourth dimension, the controlled rotational motion is not controlled and changes depending on the weight balance of the front and rear seats.Therefore, every time you get on the train (the combination of passengers changes), not only the rotation but also the speed is different, and the movement is always unpredictable.In Japan, it appeared as "2017D Spin Coaster Arashi (ARASHI)" in Nagashima Spa Land on March 3, 10.
  • Self-propelled --- The vehicle is equipped with power such as a motor.


There are various theories on its origin (America OfDollyAndRussiaDeveloped from the ice slides). The basis of the current roller coaster is(English edition 1884ToConey IslandIt was built inPatentTo get. Early roller coasters were made of wood, and today there are a few wooden coasters in existence and in operation.

Roller coaster is afraid of the seat behind
When a vehicle starts to dive, a vehicle in front starts to descend first, and a vehicle in the rear descends while accelerating so as to be pulled by it. At that time, a zero G or a negative G occurs, so that passengers feel strongly drawn in or jumped upward, so that the rear seat is generally scared. The longer the vehicles are connected, the greater the fear. Many thrill-seeking enthusiasts prefer rear seats.
Roller coaster speed changes depending on the season and temperature
On the wheels of the roller coaster,greaseと 呼 ば れ るlubricantIs painted. When the temperature is low, such as in winter, the grease becomes hard and it becomes slow because it becomes a resistance of the wheel. On the contrary, when the temperature is high such as in summer, the grease becomes softer and the speed is higher than in winter. Even in the same season, the speed tends to increase after noon when the maximum temperature reaches morning and evening. For this reason, Fujikyu Highland's FUJIYAMA is taking measures to put special wheels in the winter and heat them with a heater on the platform.
Roller coaster loops and turns are scarier the smaller the diameter
If you pass through the loop at the same speed, the smaller the diameter, the more you rotate without slowing down and the stronger G is generated, so the thrill becomes higher. Even in the case of horizontal turning, the smaller the diameter, the slower the speed and the tendency for G to become stronger.
