Design

A sign on the ride reads:

"GET A FIRST HAND EXPERIENCE OF WEIGHTLESSNESS, HEAVINESS AND A SENSATION OF BEING EJECTED OUT OF THE TRACK WHILE TRAVELLING IN THIS THRILLING EXHIBIT WHERE ONLY 'G' FORCES CONTROL YOUR JOURNEY. AFTER YOU TAKE YOUR SEATS. THE CARS SHALLBE PULLED UPTO THE TOP MOST POINT AT 23 FEET HEIGHT AND THEN RELEASED FOR A FREE FALL ALONG THE TRACK & YOU EXPERIENCE WEIGHTLESSNESS!! THEN SUDDENLY YOU WILL FIND YOURSELF PRESSED AGAINST YOUR SEATS WHILE THE CARS CLIMB UP-THIS TIME WITH OUT THE AID OF ANY EXTERNAL FORCES, BUT DUE TO INERTIA OF MOTION WHEN YOU PASS THROUGH THE CURVES YOU GET A FEELING OF BEING THROWN OUT, DUE TO CENTRIFUGAL FORCE. THERE ARE TWO LOOPS, TWO HORIZONTAL CURVES, A DIP AND A HILL IN THIS EXHIBIT TO GIVE YOU THE THRILL-ENJOY AND LEARN!!!"
