Abstract (en)

The roller coaster installation has rails (6) mounted on a support (10) with vehicles having a principal beam (1) and a transverse chassis (2). The station has a removable platform (14) which swings into position when the vehicle is present allowing people to board and exit from a seat and so that during the ride there is a complete view of the rails.

Abstract (fr)

L'installation pour parc d'attraction, dite roller coaster, comporte un circuit formé de rails (6), montés sur des supports (10) eux-mêmes fixés sur une poutre porteuse (11), sur lesquels circulent un ou plusieurs véhicules, prévus pour rouler sur les rails, par opposition au roller coaster suspendus, et au moins une station pour l'embarquement et le débarquement des passagers. Chaque véhicule comporte une poutre principale (1), au moins un châssis transversal (2) sur lequel sont montés d'une part des roues (3, 4, 5) collaborant avec les rails (6) et d'autre part des sièges (7) pourvus de moyens de retenue (8). La station, qui comporte au moins un quai (12) comporte également un plancher escamotable (14) qui remplace celui, absent, du véhicule lorsque le véhicule se trouve arrêté dans une position prédéterminée d'embarquement et de débarquement. De ce fait, le véhicule peut être réalisé sans aucun plancher. Par conséquent, aucun élément de carrosserie, abstraction faite de la poutre centrale, ne s'interpose entre les yeux du passager et les rails (6), respectivement les supports (10) des rails. <IMAGE>
