Abstract

See full text

An apparatus and method for creating enhanced articulation in a roller coaster car. The apparatus and method involve a single seat roller coaster car that has only back track wheel assemblies secured to its chassis. The front end of the chassis has a coupling arm fixedly secured at one arm end. The other arm end includes a rod end that is received within the chassis of a lead car, or another roller coaster car. This lead car, or this other roller “secondary” coaster car, has a receiver to which the rod end from the coupling arm of the roller coaster car is attached. This coupling configuration, in combination with the omission of any front track wheel assemblies on the roller coaster car, allows the roller coaster car to articulate through a solid angle in 360° in an x-y plane. The rod end/receiver coupling is located underneath the seat of either the lead car or another secondary roller coaster car, thereby forming a “coupling compartment”. Removing the seat cushion provides access to this coupling compartment.
