Nice roller-coaster documentary on Foxtel

11 posts in this topic

On Discovery Science last night (before Saturday Night Live!) there was a pretty good (relative to other ones I've seen) documentary on roller-coasters. It went into detail on wheel assemblies, the history of the coaster, the types of roller-coasters, and some of the manufacturers. They interviewd the creator of X (Alan Schilke or summat), and had lots of POV footage on some of the SFMM coaster, Knotts Berry Farm coasters, and then some from other parts of the US. It was, as I've said, one of the better ones I've seen and even though it doesn't give any information that any people here wouldn't know, it was still good viewing. If It's on again, I suggest you watch it, twas quite enjoyable.

Just go to the Foxtel website (www.foxtel.com.au) and use the search program once every week (you can only search within the confines of a week unfortunately). Make sure you're searching for the whole week, only on Discovery Science and Adventure and walla, if it's on again, it'll show up. Alternatively, If you really wanted to watch it, you could ring them up or email them or something...
