31 Killer Roller Coaster Designs

From Submerged Park Rides to $40 Million Thrill Rides

— February 7, 2012 — Art & Design
You may find yourself cursing the winter weather and the closing of the theme parks that it brings after you've seen all of these killer roller coaster designs. The design of the roller coaster has changed much since its inception. The thrill rides of tomorrow are faster, more expensive and may even be able to cause death.

These killer roller coaster designs are a great portal into what the theme parks of the future will look like. They are also good for seeing how the curvy and slim profile of roller coasters has inspired everyone from designers to marketers. You haven't truly witnessed good marketing until you've seen a bra or condom company advertise using a roller coaster.
