       "Six Items a Day of Enduring Insignificance" 

Greetings Infomaniacs,

This weekend is my boyfriend's birthday, and I am surprising 
him with tickets to Six Flags Great America (Chicago). Both 
of us love roller coasters - the faster and scarier the 

I would love to try out the new Dark Knight coaster, but I 
heard the line was almost four hours long! I would much 
rather spend that time on other rides - and splashing around 
in the water park!

you're on it.”

                        RANDOM TIDBITS 

La Marcus Adna Thompson is credited with conceiving and 
patenting the first roller coaster in America in 1878. He 
created the Switchback Railroad at Coney Island, which 
opened in 1884. The oldest operating roller coaster is Leap 
the Dips at Lakemont Park in Pennsylvania, built in 1902.


The first American roller coaster was actually a train for 
moving coal down a mountain, called the Mauch Chunk 
Switchback Railroad. After the train no longer needed to 
transport coal, passengers began to ride this thrilling 
train from the 1850s through 1929. 


The concept for roller coasters was first conceived in 15th 
century Russia, where they constructed ice slides between 
seventy and eighty feet tall and hundreds of feet long that 
people rode on sleds.

The longest steel coaster prize goes to Steel Dragon 2000, 
at Nagashima Spaland in Mie, Japan. Steel Dragon, which 
opened in 2000, totals 8,133 feet of track. Daidarasaurus, 
at Expoland in Suita, Japan (which opened in 1970) has the 
second longest track, measuring 7,677 feet. In the United 
States, Beast, at Kings Island in Ohio, measures 7,359.


Kingda Ka at Six Flags Great Adventure in New Jersey 
currently holds the record for fastest speed, reaching 128 
miles per hour. The coaster opened in May 2005 in the jungle 
themed area of Great Adventure. Placing a close second, at 
123 miles per hour, is Top Thrill Dragster at Cedar Point, 
Ohio, which opened in May 2003.


While many modern steel roller coasters boast a 90 degree 
angle of descent, there are actually four coasters that 
have a 97 degree angle – Vild-Svinet (in Denmark), Typhoon 
(Belgium), Speed: No Limits (United Kingdom) and Rage 
(United Kingdom). In the United States, Mystery Mine at 
Dollywood and Maverick at Cedar Point both reach angles of
