“The design starts with a steep-angled lift to the 500-metre (1,600 ft) top, that would take two minutes for the 24-passenger train to reach.[1] From there, a 510-metre (1,670 ft) drop would take the train to 360 kilometres per hour (220 mph), close to its terminal velocity, before flattening out and speeding into the first of its seven slightly clothoid inversions.[3] Each inversion would have a smaller diameter than the one before in order to inflict 10 g to passengers while the train loses speed. After a sharp right-hand turn the train would enter a straight, where loading of passengers and unloading of the bodies could take place.2
