Most everyone is familiar with the sensation of excitement and awe watching the steep curves and daring constructions of big roller coasters.

The first German steel roller coaster was built in the 1960s and reformed the construction of roller coasters all over the world.

Not Released Yet... Oct 26, 2004
Looks like the publication date has changed to December 30. I've waited since March...I can wait a bit longer, I guess.
it's awesome!! Sep 8, 2004
This book was not actually released until August 30th. I have not recieved my copy yet, either, but I do have the original German version of this same book, and I love it. The pictures are really nice, and the words, what of them I can read, are very informative, as well. There are many nice pictures and blueprints of rides I would definitely recommend this book for anyone who is seriously interested in roller coasters.
DOES THIS BOOK REALLY EXIST??? Aug 27, 2004
I've tried to order this book from this site.com and still have not received it. I ordered it back in December 2003. It either says 10-12 days ship or not yet published. Please this site.com, clean up your inventory listings. Is this book available or not?
