"Roller Coaster"

A ride in which a train rides along a set of rails, usually with thrilling elements, using gravity to create the motion. Traditional roller coasters used a chain lift to create the kinetic energy of the ride. Many rides today create their energy through launch methods such as magnets or hydraulics.
