The sparks cease and the screen goes completely dark. Your heart beats fast with anticipation as the rollercoaster you designed comes to life before your eyes in the form of a commercial…
Thunder cracks! A torrential downpour floods a highway traffic jam. There’s wind, rain, and lightning. A bored commuter sits in traffic in his Ford Pinto. Suddenly, the rain turns into… CG snakes! Snakes slither all over his windshield! They break through the glass with their fangs! The commuter screams in terror. On-screen logo: CYCLONE VIPER.
Smash cut to a steel rollercoaster. The train blasts along the track, performing dives, corkscrews, and a seemingly interminable number of vertical loops. “It’s illegal to build seventeen 360 degree loops in a row. Almost everyone who rides it will die,” a deep voiced narrator states. “We won’t tell if you don’t.”
A teen boy exits the coaster, where a newswoman is waiting for him. “So, what did you think?” she asks. The boy has a full gray beard and gives off a heavenly glow. It’s clear from his wise expression that the boy has seen the face of God. The coaster’s thrills and chills propelled him into a higher state of consciousness. He’s carrying two big stone tablets, one on each arm. Chiseled into the first one: “God Sez.” The second reads, “Coasters Rule!” The boy turns. The boy’s angry boss enters the scene. “You’re a disgrace to our industry,” the boss scolds, handing him a pink slip. “You’ll never work at another roach-infested orange julius stand at a recently condemned mall again!”
