[READ AND ANSWER EACH QUESTION AND WATCH THE VIDEOS BEFORE YOU ANSWER THE QUESTIONS OR YOU WILL GET ZERO CREDIT]

The Roller Coaster WARS have been raging for years.  Ever since Cedar Point opened Magnum back in 2000. Every park goes for the biggest, fastest, tallest, biggest drop and most interesting roller coaster to bring people into their park.  Well the small country of U.A.E. and their capital city Abu Dhabi want in on the wars.  They just opened Formula Rossa, a Ferrari themed Roller Coaster that has taken the world speed record at 144 mph.

A) Is this roller coaster interesting enough to be in the running for best coaster in the world?  Why or why not?

B) Do you think people would travel to Abu Dhabi to ride this roller coaster? Why or why not?

C) If you analyze the theme parks you know about, what would make this roller coaster more appealing or less appealing than parks you go to?

    A) no i think it isn’t in the running to be best roller coaster because it is way to simple for me. I think the best roller coaster has to be really detailed with something really unique about it.
    B) i no i wouldn’t travel that far for it but some roller coaster fens probably will, because how fast it is.
    C) More appealing- cause its so fast and looks neat cause its built like a car. Less appealing- cause it is simple and don’t have that great of falls , and nothing real unique that you look forward to while riding the ride.

    A. I think this roller coaster is interesting enough to be the best roller coaster in the world shouldn’t be the best in the world because not everybody has rode it and if it was the best roller coaster was the best roller coaster then it would have the best speed, highest, and fastest. Also, the roller coaster would be around in different places if it was the best.

    B. I think most people would travel around the world to go ride that roller coaster because if it’s the best roller coaster then people would want to go there. Also, if people love to ride roller coaster they would travel to Abu Dhabi just to ride that ride.

    C. I think it’s more appealing because looks cool cause it’s shaped like a car. It’s mainly less appealing because it’s too simple and it looks boring because it’s not height enough.

    A.) No, i feel this way because its just fast it don’t really go anywhere it just takes off fast ! It would be different if it had a loop or a big drop. It looks fun, the speed is on point but everything else kinda sucks to me. This defiantly should not be in the running for best roller coaster !

    B.) In some cases i feel this way because if your the type of person that likes speed than i think this would be excellent ride, But if your the type of person that likes height than this really wouldn’t be the right ride for you.

    C.) To make this ride more appealing I feel like they should put higher hills and loops and things ! this ride to me is only good for speed.

    A. I think so, because it is a Ferrari themed roller coaster and it is the fastest roller coast yet in history.

    B. People might want to experience a fast roller coaster so therefore, people might travel just to see what it is like to be on a fast Ferrari.

    C. It will make it more appealing because it is really fast and people love new roller coasters so it ain’t really a problem for any amusement park.

    A.) No I do not think its interesting enough, or thrilling enough to be in the running for the best roller coaster in the world. People really like roller coasters that give you a sense of thrill, but I feel parts of this roller coaster are the same, and it wouldn’t be that good.

    B.) No, I don’t think it is a good enough ride to travel half the world to ride it. I know that I wouldn’t. I can’t speak for other people though.

    C.) If it had more things like loops, or higher drops it might be more thrilling in which more appealing.

    A). People would probably really enjoy this roller coaster cause its fast and seems fun. But i don’t really think it’s interesting enough to be in the running for best coaster in the world. Its just simple.

    B). I think some people might. It just depends on how much they enjoy fast roller coasters.

    C). Its more appealing because its really fast, and its an attractive roller coaster. (The carts are shaped like little cars). But if it had loops, it would be way better, or maybe even higher drops.

    A) No because its fast but its to straight there aren’t enough curves or hills like the diamondback it looks so plain.

    B) No because it a waste of money and there are plenty of other amusement parks in there state and if not they can go to another state they don’t have to travel that much.

    C) I go to a park if the roller coaster is high gos upside down and it has fast turns the guys in the video dint seem that impressed

    A. yes because with its tall hills and super fast motion it could very be in the running for best roller coaster in the world. it may be up to some tough competition but it may come up on top.

    B. no because if it does win best coaster in the world people around the world will start building the coaster for a bigger amount of people at the amusement park.

    C. it will make me want to ride it and keep riding it because it is so fun and fast. i like fast speeds and tall hills with coasters because it gets me hyper and gets me awake.

    A) I say this roller coaster has a good chance for it because the world’s best roller coaster’s have alot of speed and intense curves. This can be enjoyable for people that like the feeling of speed.

    B) I say they would because some people live to ride these kind of machines. It may be a long trip for a short ride but to some, that is worth it.

    C) This could make any park an awesome park because if this was at King’s Island, it could be the most popular one there and that park will be the best in the world somehow. If Six Flags was still around here, they would not lose their park with this coaster there since it is indeed the fastest roller coaster.

    A.) People would most likely enjoy this roller coaster, but it don’t seem good enough to be in the running for the best one in the world. there are many more theme parks with better coasters then this. this does seem fun though.

    B.) I personally wouldn’t travel that far to get on a roller coaster. I can go to Kings Island and have more fun there then i would have riding that other coaster. Some really big roller coaster fans might travel that far, nobody is stopping them but sure wont.

    C.) The only reason this coaster would be more appealing is because its faster then other ones. Its less appealing because i’m sure who ever hears about this caster will want to ride it but most people dont want to travel tht far to ride ONE roller coaster!

    A. Yes because it has broken a record for fastest roller coaster which can compete with the largest, longest and highest roller coasters.

    B. No because nobody travels half way across the world to ride a roller coaster unless you got money blowing out your but.

    C. it would be more apealing by being exotic and cool but unapealing by being uncovenyetly close to us americans.

    A.) I think so because the way the people looked excited on the roller coaster they loved it. so it can be one of the best.

    B.) Yeah maybe if it was for vacation but nothing more.

    C.) I think that this roller coaster is better than most theme parks I know. This is because this one has carts designed as a ferrari maybe like the formula 1 racecars.

    A. No I don’t think it is even close to being one of the best roller coasters. It looks fun but it’s not fast enough. It seems like it’s build to go fast because of the wheels. If it was a little faster then it would be fun and maybe interested in the top ten best roller coasters. And also it should have at least some type of loops.

    B. Yes people would go to Abu Dhabi to go take a vacation because it seems nice and some people like to travel. They probably wouldn’t do it because of the roller coaster because it is not fast for real.

    C. What would make the roller coaster more appealing than amusement parks is if the owners of the roller coaster make it go faster and had more fun tricky things to the roller coaster like people will think what’s coming next. Like when they are coming up a hill they should slow it down then go top speed going down and do like a flip where you turn the whole roller coaster over. A little twist and then a loop.

    A.)yes it could be because its a roller coaster and a lot of people like them so if its new then a lot of people will like it and vote it for beast roller coaster.
    B.) Some people might not everyone because its a long trip i think only the people who love roller coasters will.
    C.) Because its new and a lot of the other roller coasters will be old or people will have already rode them a couple of times.

    A.] No, i think that its not very interesting plus i should go a lot faster , and it should have a lot more turns and loops.

    B.] no because its not the type of ride that excite you or would make you wanna go.

    C.] i thin if it had more loops and turns and things like that it would be more appealing.

    a) i don’t think it is very interesting because it seems kinda like another coaster well i know its not but its not that big of a change well not to me.

    b)no i don’t think that people would because i think that its not that important you could go anywhere and ride a roller coaster?

    c)maybe if the ride had better, features maybe a tunnel or loops and stuff o upside down and make it more fun and exiting.
