Steam-powered ball-bearing roller-coaster November 14, 2006

This post was not a challenge to get as many hyphenated words into the title as possible, but it probably wins that prize. Instead this is one of those bizarre inventions that just don’t make any sense, but are still cool. I would really like a version of SpaceWarp after seeing this, but I would probably stick to it’s normal, electric power rather than driving it’s elevator using a steam engine. What’s even more pointless about this particular invention is that the steam engine is electrically heated – so you are probably using more electricity heating the water than you would be driving an electric motor directly. Still, it’s all just a bit of fun.
