Bunting and Force Engineering Design Magnetic Rollercoaster Brake

Magnetic Rollercoaster Brake designed and built for Force Engineering

Bunting and Force Engineering have collaborated to design and build a novel magnetic brake for use on rollercoasters.  During the two-year project, the project team considered different permanent magnet arrangements required to generate the braking force needed to slow and stop a rollercoaster cart.  The final design used high-power, low-weight neodymium magnets. As a leading…
