Build it without brakes

Recommended Posts

Here is a question I have been pondering and I hope someone who knows more than I do can answer it. If you are designing a coaster, especially a woodie, why build it if you have to break it? I realize you have to have a point or 2 for safety, emergency stops which would be left off unless needed and an end of ride break run but wouldn't it be more cost effective especially from a long term maintenance stand point to design the ride so you can transfer from element to element without mid ride breaking? It seems to me if the ride could run in a continious flow, it would be a better, more exciting ride. Any thoughts or comments?
