 Roller Coaster Anyone?

On June 16, 1884, the first roller coaster in America opened at Coney Island, in Brooklyn, NY. Known as a switchback railway, it was the brainchild of LaMarcus Thompson, traveled approximately six miles per hour at just 50ft above the ground and cost a nickel to ride.

Today there are over 760 roller coasters in the United States alone and this month in New Jersey, the Jersey Devil Coaster opened at 13 stories tall with speed up to 58 mph!
