#2022: FunFear

Today’s invention is an even more terrifying roller coaster ride.

As the passenger vehicle rides up a hill, as shown, the passengers see signs saying ‘under construction, gap ahead’.

They can see no track ahead but as they reach the missing section, the carriage engages with a swing arm (red) which rotates about a fixed point and creates the illusion that they flew through the air to connect with the next section of track.

(A better version of this might replace the arm, visible to those on the ground, with a section of track which extends from underneath the part which lies just before the gap).
