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.

This 40-minute documentary really didn't spend too much time when it came to out-lining the evolution of the amusement park "thrill ride" from the past. No, it didn't.
Instead it zoomed in at full-throttle on the high-tech, 3-D, motion-simulator rides of today that feature super-awesome CGI effects by such tech-wiz designers as Ben Stassen (this documentary's director).
In these state-of-the-art thrill rides (that use NASA technology) - "Illusion" is, of course, everything.
So (if you've got a big-screen TV set) - Buckle up, sit back, and hold onto your seats for a total adrenaline rush on the ultimate, amusement park, thrill ride of them all.
*Note* - The one thing that seriously marred this documentary was the irritating "old miner" character who repeatedly popped up in this otherwise entertaining presentation to offer his worthless and unwelcome remarks to the audience.
