Emotional Comics For Roller Coaster Dayby The GoComics Team
The history of the modern roller coaster has just about as many twists, turns, and immense drops as the rides themselves. In fact, you'd get motion sickness just reading about how Russia had these things called "Aerial Promenades," in the early 1800s, and then how coal carts got turned into "Gravity Railroads," and then how Coney Island followed it up with a "Switchback Railway" before somebody created a "Scenic Railway" in 1886 -- it's all a bunch of details until the true, blue "Roller-coaster" debuted via patent on August 16, 1898. Hold up... August 16? Oh, that's today. No wonder it's Roller Coaster Day!
If you can't swing a theme park visit today, fear not. We've got hilarious comics that simulate all the spills, chills and thrills below.
