88. Rollercoaster Tycoons

Nia's Blogging and Vlogging Website

This is a bit of a strange video, but well worth a watch. Two guys invent themselves a public holiday, calling it 'Rollercoaster Day', and they head off to the Six Flags Magic Mountain theme park in Valencia, California (close-ish to Los Angeles). It is bedlam with lots of screaming and excitement all round as the people take to the thrill rides, such as the swinging pirate ship and various different coasters.

However, the peculiar thing about the Rollercoaster Tycoons video is that on a couple of the rides, they've used some editing software effects to remove parts of the track. This makes it look like the rollercoasters are extremely dangerous and that the cars are flying through mid-air, although towards the end, the cars kind of crash and fall to the ground. The funny thing is that if you take the time to read some of the 20,000+ comments, people actually believe that these rides exist, with the missing track adding to the overall adrenaline rush.

This video was uploaded to YouTube in 2011, to the RocketJump channel by its creator Freddie Wong, who interestingly is the older brother of fellow YouTuber, the one and only Jimmy Wong. Freddie is best known for his controversial video 'Ching Chong: Asians in the Library Song'. Other popular films on the RocketJump channel include a number of additional viral videos, such as Medal of Honor Cat, Future First Person Shooter, Real Life Mario Kart, Cereal Killer and First Person Mario, although Rollercoaster Tycoons remains the most viewed, with around 40 million hits so far.
