Although I am not a fan of roller coasters, I am a sucker for anything Queen-related. Like most folks my age, I still head-bang Wayne’s World style in my car when Brian May starts riping that guitar.
But back to roller coasters. Once I get close to the ride, I start imagining all the ways I will die using any roller coaster (yes, even Disney’s Big Thunder Mountain got to me each time I sat down, looking reassuringly at my then 9 yo daughter, pretending this thing won’t destroy all of us), I can recognize the work and creativity behind them.
The folks at ChuggersRCT created an amazing roller coaster that is synchronized to Queen’s megahit “Bohemian Rhapsody” using Roller Coaster Tycoon. Now usually, roller coaster rides last about two minutes, but imagine a twisting, turning, looping engine of death going at it for a little over 6 minutes! All with a few lyrics on the side.
