Thanks. Hope to hear from y'all soon.

The Robocoaster article appeared in yesterday's NY Times....Jill and I were even quoted - very briefly, esp. for me...I'm typically quite wordy...;)
Really good article...Congrats, Noah! :)

Ugh...I hate roller coaster simulators. Give me the real thing even if it's only a kiddie coaster.
Nashville needs a theme park!

How does robocoaster simulate a launch?
Or the feeling of speed? Or height?
Not saying I don't desperately want to ride, but I remain skeptical.

Robocoaster is not a coaster simulator. Actually, it doesn't really simulate anything that I can think of. It just tosses people in different directions, very rapidly and in a smooth manner. I found it to be quite fun but its not something for everyone.
