Railbrazer Roller Coaster

Railbrazer Roller Coaster

San Jose, California

Besides designing buildings, we also get to design cool things like the Railbrazer Coaster at Great America. While waiting in line to ride the rollercoaster you should check out the cool structural engineering connections and brackets. RailBlazer will lift riders to a height of 106 feet before plunging them face down at a 90-degree angle. Throughout the 1,800 feet of track, riders will travel 52 miles per hour, experience an abundance of airtime and steeply banked turns, undertake three inversions and twist through a zero gravity roll.
