Movie Reviews

Not very thrilling
Joe Campbell | Goodwater, AL USA | 09/02/2000
(2 out of 5 stars)

"This was my first rollercoaster DVD purchase and I am terribly disappointed. I was expecting more "front-seat" coaster rides. I am afraid now to purchase other simular titles. I would prefer no sound other than actual effects of track noise and rider whoops, screams and yells."
Boring

(1 out of 5 stars)

"Buy one or all of the videos from the Thrill Rides box set instead of this selection. The video centers more on simulator attractions than "regular" thrill rides, which, in my opinion, isn't exciting unless your couch at home is moving violently like a simulator itself. You learn more about the science AND history of thrill rides in the previously noted video set as opposed to "The Science of Fun.""
GREAT!

"This movie was great but not really about roller coasters. They were more focused on simulators and computerized graphics.It is probably alot more thrilling to see in the Omni Theatre.All in all,it is a fun and interesting movie to watch."
