Brava! was a steel indoor hybrid roller coaster previously located at the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art in North Adams, Massachusetts, USA.

The coaster was part of the Brake Run Helix exhibition by artist EJ Hill, which ran from October 2022 through February 2024.[2]

Design

Elements

The ride only operated once an hour to allow guests to view the coaster up close when it is not operating.

Museum guests were required to book a slot to ride on the museum's website in order to ride.

On the hour, the area around the coaster was closed off and the car was pulled up the hill via an electric winch. The rider then boarded the ride and was pushed down the drop by an employee.

Trains

Single car. Riders are arranged inline in a single row, for a total of 1 riders per car.
