The Tusenfryd Thundercoaster

This paper outlines key aspects of the design and construction of a timber roller-coaster in Norway. The ride was tailor-made for the site and the paper describes how this was done. It provides a description of the various forces acting and how they are carried by the timber supports. Fabrication and construction of the track are also described.
