    112 degrees???

    plunges down an incline of 112 degrees from a high point of 30m (98ft).
    That is more than vertical---they must be upside down

    180 degrees would be vertical.

    180 degrees = vertical = NOT

    Make a dot.

    Draw a line to the right.
    Now draw a line to the left.
    Measure the arc between the lines drawn.
    Use a protractor.

    It measures 180 degrees. It is horizontal. Flat. Not verticle.

    Now draw a line, straight up from the dot.
    That is called verticle.
    Measure the arc from horizontal.
    Use the protractor.

    It measures 90 degrees = verticle.
    --------------------------------------

    Crippen must be right - they must be upside down.

    Or the angle is mistated. They probably mean 78 degrees.

    On the other hand, I do believe some roller coasters do spend some of their time upside down.

    Frikken hell where did you boys learn geometry.

    If you are at the top of a hill and the decline is 112 degrees you measure from the vertical. So if you look at it from a side perspective 90 would be 3 0'clock 112 somewhere between 4 and 5. 180 would be 6 o'clock. Any angle greater than 180 would indeed be upside down.
