How to create the imagination of movement for fun parks is the theme of this documentary. Although engineers try and try to create machines that shake, tilt, turn, lift and drop people in a way that fools their senses, the real McCoy cannot be imitated: Roller Coasters just let you experience movement much, much more intense than everything else - even on the screen.

First off, "Thrill Ride", like many other IMAX movies, is a DOCUMENTARY. In my opinion, "Thrill Ride" was a great DOCUMENTARY. It talks about the progress of amusement park rides and the creation of flight simulators. It takes you on a rollercoaster, and some simulated rides.
But I keep hearing people complain that it wasn't the "WHITE KNUCKLE" movie experience that they expected to see. The title itself, "Thrill Ride: THE SCIENCE OF FUN" is a dead giveaway that the movie is about the science of thrill rides, thus a DOCUMENTARY.
Overall, the images were outstanding, the narration was boring, the sound was great, and the "prospector" tour-guide was annoying, but funny.
