Roller Coasters are the thrill of the world. As you fly around the track doing crazy inversions and at amazing speeds you get a weird feeling in your stomach that is exhilarating. Roller coasters are a lot of fun and entertaining.
The roller coaster was first built in 1784 in Russia and others believe it was in Paris in the year 1812. The first roller coaster was built out of wood and its purpose was for entertainment. The first roller coaster in America was built in 1884 on Coney Island New york. The first friction roller coaster was in the 1920’s.
