Story Idea - Rollercoaster Theming

Life is like a rollercoaster. A common analogy used to explain the ups and downs of life. When thinking of this rollercoaster though, depending on your experience you may picture a stand alone coaster. One in the middle of a park, perhaps sitting next to a carousel or some other ride. Each are enjoyable experiences as you enter the rides, but once the ride is over…well its over.

Or perhaps you think about a slightly different experience. One where there is a theme woven throughout the park experience and the coaster itself isn’t just stand alone tracks, but maybe a mountain or a space center. There is a preshow and a story. A feeling of being on a wild train or venturing through a snowy mountain that is embedded in your mind upon entering and an experience that continues even after the ride is over.
