In this edition of "A World of Difference," Korey Kiepert, owner and engineer with The Gravity Group, goes through the 8 main types of roller coasters and breaks down how they work as well as the decisions behind why they get built in the first place. Korey explains the difference between a giga coaster and a strata coaster, as well as what separates a "wild mouse" from a "mine train."

Better question would by why do some models that are not that great, get copied a lot. While good ones do not.

I'm surprised he didn't mention the hybrid coaster thing that's been so popular lately. Taking on old wooden coaster and re-trackng it with steel so that can potentially go upside down and give more airtime than it would before. Six Flags LOVES doing this (Magic Mountain's Colussus becoming Twisted Colossus, SF New England's Cyclone becoming Twisted Cyclone, etc.)

Really cool video, BUT... About the 4D coasters, I thought X2's spinning was controlled by the inside pair of tack, meaning that there is not a high uncertainty of "a different ride each time". Something I thought arrow's innovation on the track was cool.

Am I the only person who felt pretty casual until they got to 4D coasters? It didn't start as a wing-coaster, the wing-coasters came after. The cars don't spin randomly, it's highly controlled. etc.

Jacob Miller Måned siden
not to correct the engineer but the 4D coasters shown don't actually rotate freely. The track has 4 rails instead of 2, and the distance between them controls how the seats rotate on the car. So it's a controlled ride and it's the same experience every time, but they're some of my favorite rides. There are coasters that spin freely, but they're not actually what's considered a "4D coaster."
