This project presents three different scopes of construction of a wooden roller coaster: design, testing, and project planning. A structural design was completed and then used for the construction of a test prototype of a structural element that would be present in the roller coaster. After the data was analyzed from the prototype test and the preliminary structural design, a finished structural design was completed. Along with this a project schedule was created for the construction of the proposed wooden roller coaster.
