ROLLER COASTER DESIGN
In early design iterations, the roller coaster had an internal loop...
Unfortunately, we had to scrap the loop. One of the steps to getting the coaster approved by MIT and Cambridge was going through MIT's Environment, Health and Safety department (EHS). Basically, EHS said No Upside-Down People. Period.

The built design was geometrically resolved to moderate the g-force on riders, but still maintaining the ambitions of a multi-hilled profile.
