8: Ryan Friedlinghaus – Designing a Roller Coaster
With all of the notoriety Friedlinghaus has for designing vehicles, it’s no surprise that a rollercoaster would be the next project. He designed the West Coast Racers at Six Flags Magic Mountain to much fanfare. The ride has two side-by-side tracks, 14 track crossover and near misses, and zero-g stalls.
This is the first amusement park ride Friedlinghaus has designed, but it just goes to show how impressive his skill set is. He can design just about anything that he puts his mind to, and if he can do it in the car business, then he can do it at a theme park.
