Speech on Coaster Safety

Sunday, April 30, 2006 3:37 PM
Hey guys, I used to post here all the time under CoasterBill42, and have been focusing on school to much to post on here all the time. Anways, I'm doing a big speech on how roller coasters are safe and I need a great closing line. This is the start of my conclusion:

Roller coasters are built to put fear into our bodies. They’re made to make us feel like we are falling off the side of the world.But when you look at all of the facts, it is hard to see why some people still think they are the most dangerous objects on the face of the earth.

Any help would be GREATLY appreciated. Thanks a lot everyone!

Watch this report.


I love the line (And truth) That your four times more likely to hit the powerball than die on a coaster.

You could allways go with a classic:

So the next time your on a coaster just remember: please keep your hands and arms inside the car at all times, do not stand up, and enjoy your ride! *** Edited 4/30/2006 10:42:05 PM UTC by Touchdown***

I don't think people think they're the most dangerous objects on earth. It's people's selective memory and badly passed rumors that may make someone fear coasters. Someone might equate excessive speed and/or height with danger.

You can't erase out of someone's mind a bad accident. You may not be able to convince someone that a bad accident didn't occur on a certain ride, ruling out their chances for getting on anything at all.

It's the very design of some rides such as Kingda Ka that may have someone such as my dad (whose in his 60s) going "They're going to kill someone," after I recited the statistics to him.

All the statistics in the world will never convince some people to get on a ride. Good luck!

It's the same with airplanes. Thousands take off and land daily with no problems. Every few years, there's a bad crash and that's what people remember.
