AMUSEMENT PARK RIDE: ELLIPSOID ROLLER COASTER<br />
Riders Travel Along A Clothoid Loop<br />
Ascending the loop causes an increase in height (potential energy) and decrease in kinetic energy and speed. The rider experiences greatest speeds at the bottom of the loop after the decrease in height causes an increase in kinetic energy and speed.
