At UCEC, we passionately pursue our chosen field of panel construction. But we're huge fans of almost any machine that's made well and performs flawlessly. Roller coasters are no exception.
For our Friday Video, we bring you a look at how the hypercoaster* Ride of Steel is built to withstand turns that experience more force than a Space Shuttle launch. The ride can also go from 0 to 75 mph in two seconds from heights of 215 feet. You may never ride roller coasters the same way again.
Enjoy the clip!

* Hypercoasters are roller coasters that have drops of 200 feet or more.
