A hill is an element that travels in a straight line designed to lift riders out of their seats and provide a feeling of weightlessness, commonly known as airtime. It produces negative g-force to achieve the effect. The term has been used to refer to a series of smaller hills typically found near the end of the track, a common finale on older wooden coasters. In many modern coasters, a camelback can refer to a much larger, single hill that is found earlier in the ride.
