i was wondering if this dvd is any good(IMAX Thrill Ride: The Science of Fun)? I really enjoy rollercoasters, and this dvd looks like it would be interesting. What are your thoughts? thanks

Rollercoasters in 3D. Search the forum before you reply ...

Lawrence, no need to be a jerk to everyone.

wlj, if this is the same thing I saw at an IMAX theater, it was more for kids, and less about rollercoasters. There was a lot of virtual-realtiy type of rollercoaster rides, and not much footage of actual rollercoasters. If you want to try to experience some rollercoasters, you might want to try America's Greatest Rollercoasters in 3D. There are 2 volumes of that, neither of which I have seen.

Ooog, this film is pretty bad. There are some 3-d roller coaster films that are not so bad; this one won't tell you anything you don't already know, and spends way too much time on simulation rides. Also, the demonstration of the IMAX speaker system is quite out of place on the TV.
