11 Record-Holding Roller Coasters (roller coasters, rides, theme parks, amusement parks, travel, places) - ODDEE | enjoy yourself | Scoop.it

Theme parks are always trying to outdo one another with bigger, faster, steeper—and all around crazier—rides. (roller coasters, rides, theme parks, amusement parks, travel, places) The idea sketched above, is, however, different. It's designed to kill its riders. A great way to go if your time is now, What do you think about suicide by amusement park ride? 

Kenneth Weene's insight:
I used to love riding The Cyclone at Coney Island and often went to Great Adventure in New Jersey. So, how could I resist this great trip through the world of roller coasters? However, the one that fascinated me, is the coaster that hasn't been built, the one designed for euthanasia. What do you think about suicide (or execution) by amusement park ride?

How amusement parks hijack your brain - The Boston Globe

How amusement parks hijack your brain - The Boston Globe | enjoy yourself | Scoop.it
An amusement park is like no other patch of land on earth. Full of bright colors, tantalizing games, infinite ice cream, and amazing thrill rides that give you the power to speed or fly, they open every year to teeming crowds on a quest for fun. The scene can feel anarchic--but there’s another way to think about it. The people who designed the rides, set up the games, and decided where to put the churro stands didn’t do it at random. The modern amusement park is, beneath the flash and the chaos, a carefully tuned psychological machine—a creation honed for more than a century to perfectly deliver a huge range of cognitive and physiological delights, pushing buttons you didn’t even know you had.
Kenneth Weene's insight:

Summertime and the living is fun. I love amusement parks and bet lots of my friends do, too. So let your brain be hijacked a little. Be sure to check out the graphic; worth the click. When you go to that park, have a great time, and enjoy a corndog for me.
