does any one count the clicks on a roller coaster going up the first hill. I think I can estimate

Magnum XL 200 1 click per inch times 205 feet

( buzzing sound)

2460 clicks

mind you that I did not add in how many anti rollback dogs so it is only a estimate

Do any of you know how many clicks on a coaster?

And do you have a better way to estimate?

Hmmm, obsessive compulsive maybe? ;-)

Na, I am too busy enjoying the view/anticipation. :-D

Let's see... [pulls out protractor] length of hill in relation to height of ride... [sharpens pencil] number of anti-rollbacks per foot... [takes out calculator] carry the 4...

Yeah... I'm gonna say 13 lbs.

What was the question again?

well to find the length of the the lift hill, we will need to use the trig function sine. Let's say the lift angle is 35 degrees, i don't know this, your equation, using sohcahtoa, sin is the opposite over the hypotenuse, would be the sin 35 degrees equals 205/x, x being the length of the lift hill, then solve! Also you must consider how high the lift hill starts off the ground and take that away from 205. Have fun!

I really doubt that there is one click per inch. I've looked at those anti-rollback tracks that they spaced out more often than 1 per inch.

How many clicks does it take to get to the center of a lift hill?

Have you tried asking Mr. Turtle yet?
I think Mr. Owl would have said 3.

Now that's a blast from the past....

Let's call the Wham-O company to find the answer. :) *** Edited 2/7/2004 11:36:43 PM UTC by SVLFever***

Like I said it was just a estimate and no I am not obsesive Just for the people who no nothing about Millenium Force there are no clicks LoL I just used the inch because it was easy to convert. I do not no If it matters or not but does the number of anti rollback dogs matter. Now that I think about it it would be almost impossible to get a exact count beacause at the end, the clicks happens so fast due to the train pulling towards earth by gravity ( trying to sound smart)

Ok, I am a math teacher... and though I appreciate the mathematics and physics of rollercoasters that is NOT what I am thinking about while going up the lift hill... what I AM thinking is something like "THANK GOD I AM NOT TEACHING NOW! THANK GOD I AM NOT TEACHING NOW!" :-)

One of my friends tried to get me to count the number of anti-rollbacks on Raptor.

I wanted to count the number of them between each tie. I did that (I have since forgotten the number) and then started counting the number of spaces between ties.

It's hard work! I think I'll just make something up and tell my friend. That'll impress them.

Hey, I know how many brake capilers there are on Millennium Force's main run before the turn to the stations. (There are 30, 15 per side).

X's anti rollbacks on the train are 14 inches long. the ones on the lift are about the same. i have no idea, but i do know that its loud...really loud...i mean loud.
