$5,000 Dollar Project

Last month, 135 eighth graders at Royal Oak Intermediate School built a 400 foot roller coaster in their gym. This is about the height to the second floor on the Eiffel Tour The ride takes up 10,000 feet of space! It has one loop, and cost 5,000 dollars. The class built this ride bigger than their last roller coaster. This is the third roller coaster, and is one of the many amazing class projects that have been built by students in the Odyssey program. The un-named roller coaster also has side rails that keep the car from falling of the track during the 2.5 minute ride. The car that runs on this ride will be going at about 35 mph.
