Wind resistence

I just had this thought sitting in my French class today; would a coaster train inside a vacume go faste than a coaster in normal conditions?

Simple answer = yes.
Too many problems associated with this. First and foremost, people cannot exist in a vacuum without some sort of pressurized containment. So basically, unless you plan on building a space shuttle, or equipping guests with space suits, fuhgedaboudit!

I was thinking if you built a pressurized cockpit over the coaster car with oxygen. It would probably be too expensive anyway.

And what fun is a coaster if you cant feel the air rushing by you?

Say no, to lap bar nazis!

Soggy's avatar Twistamaniac was just asking a hypothetical qiestion, no need to jump all over him. (or her[ included in observance of political correctness])

Interesting question, but 2Hostyl answered it by saying, YES.

So you want a coaster in your backyard? I hope you have a big backyard.

Technacally if it was a vacume then the train wouldn't move anywhere. THis is because there wouldn't be anything for it to be attracted to (to keep a long story short attraction creats gravty)so it wouldn't move anywhere.

No, vacuums can exist anywhere. Many exist on Earth. Obviously, there is gravity in a vacuum on Earth...

Oh yeah. Vacumes exist inside lightbulbs. That would be cool if there was this big lightbulb where there was coaster inside and people were given oxygen masks.
