Editorial Reviews

Roller Coasters in the RAW! No cheesy music! No annoying commentary! No silly antics! JUST ROLLER COASTER FOOTAGE ...RAW!!! This 2-Disc DVD includes professionaly filmed front seat POV (point of view) of 30 roller coasters including: Maverick, El Toro, Tatsu, The Voyage, Renegade, Boardwalk Bullet, Kingda Ka, Troy, SheiKra, Kentucky Rumbler, Balder, and MORE! This video is "not rated" but would be considered "PG" for "language."

I am so impressed with these DVDs. I've always enjoyed watching footage of coasters (next best thing to riding them), but most coaster videos are really disappointing-- the view goes from "about to go down the big hill" to shots of the screaming riders. I don't want to watch the riders, I want to watch the RIDE! I love how when Mr. Alvey starts the POV (point of view) shots, he doesn't cut away until the ride is done. He does show footage of the ride in motion (under the parking lot, under the parking lot...) and the riders, but doesn't cut away from the POV once it starts.

This is a well-made program; you can almost feel the airtime as you fly over the hills. I got goosebumps a few times! I hope that there are many, many sequels to this DVD to come. I'd particularly like to see some of the coasters at Kennywood featured. Overall, I'm very impressed and happy with this DVD. One minor word of warning-- if you don't want your kids to hear a few swear words, you might want to turn the sound off during Eejanaika (I think that's the one). I definitely can't blame the riders, though-- I'm sure I'd say a few choice words myself on that coaster, if I could even talk coherently!

I can't wait to let my mom watch these-- this is the only way she enjoys coasters, especially now that she's getting a lot of orthopedic problems.

I used this DVD to create a simulated roller coaster ride for kids at our Vacation Bible School. Because of the wonderful shots showing exclusively from the riders Point of View, it was perfect. The kids loved it! If you kept your eyes on the track, it really felt like you were on a roller coaster. (I actually had to look away a couple of times, because of motio sickness!) FYI, be careful if kids are going to watch...there are a few "bad" words on some of the rides. BTW, I was very happy with the shipping...the DVD arrived very quickly.

I was looking for something that would be a bit different than the usual DVD movie.. something the kids would be interested in that had no plot, and could run in the background... What I got, however was one heck of a DVD, packed with some of the best roller coaster rides in the world... No kidding!...The entire family paused as I previewed it (turning my preview into a full fledged screening), and grabbed seats to watch...This DVD was a great buy, and I highly recommend it to anyone interested in virtual rides, and roller coasters.

I have always said there should be a DVD where you feel like you are on a ride. You get the
feeling of being on a rollar coaster without actually being able to plummet to your death. My boys and I love this one and the 3rd.(we don't have the 2nd one yet)
Thanks for making them!

Bought this for my son for Christmas. He loves the footage of the roller coasters, however, there is some mildly bad language, because they show real people riding the coasters and yelling obscenities along the way...something to aware of if you're buying for kids.

Easily the best coaster footage DVD out there. Unlike some DVDs that claim to have true coaster footage, this one really does. It is the closest POV I have seen besides actually riding it. It will make you feel as if you are there with a mounted camera used (very steady) and the coaster noises. No music is in the background, no commentary, and the POV is straight footage. It is not interrupted by offride shots or reverse POVs like some other DVDs out there. Also, there is more than just the Coaster POV. Each segment presents facts about the coaster and plenty of offride footage. It is a great DVD for coaster footage and if you are a true coaster enthusiast, you should buy it. I know I am looking forward to Volume 2!

I can't even begin to describe how *awesome* this DVD is. When you take the awesome quality of the footage mixed with the great selection of rides you have a mix that you have to not only buy, but watch over and over again! Try one.. or try all 6.. you won't be disapointed!

Got this for my 10yr old son for Christmas! He loves it! Watches it over and over and wants to go on every roller coaster that is on this DVD.
