You can see the dips/hills though!

And Alton Towers doesnt have any pedal powered coasters.

xscalawag - are you talking about the city of Wildwood, NJ? They have a pretty extensive boardwalk with at least 4 rollercoasters and other thrill rides. I`ve been going there every year since I was two and people always look at me like I`m crazy!

Actually....from all the pictures i see, i think there`s no `hills` to speak of. Probably just one of those sight-seeing things to see the park and whatever. But that`s just a guess.
I might be a bit lazy, but I`ll try it.....Though I`m a severe acrophobe...

That looks fun but knowing me I would get scared to peddle down the hill once I was at the top and get stuck.

that`s really cool. i`d like to try that. that seems really good for you, and it would burn off all that junk food! but what if someone like... stops on it and decides to be an ass and backing up everything. yeah. otherwise that seems pretty neat.

Hey low thank you for making us american`s look so smart you drating dumb ass.

Ass for the pedal powered roller coaster. That`s just lame. Coasters are supposed to be fun not boring.

roller-coasters work on the principle that gravity will give you enough speed after the first drop to let you roll and coast (get it?) through the rest of the ride. so i doubt that you would get stuck after the first drop.

besides, bicycling is the most efficient human-powered way of traveling, so i don`t think that a `fatass sloth` would be able to slow everyone else down either.

in my opinion, this looks really fun! and kind-of freaky (there`s no banking, so your transfered momentum would make you feel as though you were falling off whenever it turned)

omg! that looks unsafe. it would be fun, but you might fall out. i think it needs to be more inclosed or something.

I assume this one would be like that too, it would have to be incase there was an emergency as it`s that high up. Can`t just get some guy to come over and give it a kick like on the dodgems.

I think it`s all straight, no hills, or dips. But what if a couple of drunk teenagers pedal full speed and slam into someone else? Will they both fall off?

It looks like if you go down a hill you will fly forward.
If this was built in america, no one would go on it. Too lazy to go up the hills.

I`ve only gone to one amusement park ever...Last year, in NJ. I think it was called Wildwood. They only have 2 rollercoasters but I was obsessed with them! They were the only things I went on for the whole day. :( I wish we could go more often.

Cool idea, but is it just me or does it look like those people aren`t strapped in there very securely? I`d be scared to ride a rollercoaster like that with just a flimsy lap belt.

xbox011190, it`s not "gay", how can a rollercoaster be homosexual you idiot?

Anyway, yeah the coaster doesnt look fun, looks too much hard work. The fun in it is being able to just sit back and enjoy the ride. I wonder if you have to peddle UPHILL.

So what happens when someone can`t make it up a hill?

And Americans? They`ll just unbuckle and jump. It won`t work in this country. *no faith, I know, I`m sorry*

I -would- like to try it, though.
