Steepest Rollercoaster

In 1969, US astronaut Neil Armstrong stepped onto the surface of the moon, gibbering something about men and leaping giants. Unfortunately, no-one can remember exactly what Armstrong said because no-one could relate to the sensations he was attempting to describe.
It was 1969, after all: the most technologically advanced machine available to the public was a potato peeler in the shape of Kermit the Frog!

If only Armstrong's first words had been "It feels like the Dragon River ride at Chessington World of Adventures!". Everyone would have instantly understood, and perhaps Chessington would have opened a new ride dedicated to exciting lunar adventures instead of Professor Burp's Bubble Works which has inexplicably broken down every time I've been on it.

Anyway, as I was saying, everyone knows what a rollercoaster feels like: the steeper, the better they remember them.

This means that the steepest rollercoaster will likely never be forgotten by its riders; they will re-live the experience every time their car goes over a pot hole, they catch a whiff of hot dog in the air, or when they hear some bratty kid screaming because he wants an ice cream.

So if you want to stay sane, stay away from the steepest rollercoaster, the Mumbo Jumbo in Flamingo Land, Wales, England!
