How is geometry involved in a roller coaster?

Geometry is involved in a roller coaster because you will need to figure out how big the roller coaster, how wide it is, how it will be made up, how long the track it is going to be which affects the speed, and that's just a bit.

Try brainstorming yourself, and remember: Everything has to do with math.

When did the roller coaster disaster at rocky point park warwick rhode island kill many car lands in ocean?

Your question is half fact and half fiction. There was an accident at rocky point with a ride disconnecting a couple or people and injuring them, however it was not a rollercoaster, it was a swing ride called the Yo-Yo. Two kids swings disconnected from the ride and injured them severely. I was like 12 or 13 when that happened. This is not entirely true. When the Yo-Yo collapsed it was a pin at the top that sheared and caused the top of the ride to tilt and riders to hit the ground. The only recorded ride related death at Rocky Point was a maintenance worker who was killed on the Skyliner while working on the ride. You may have confused Rocky Point with Lincoln Park, which did indeed have a fatal roller coaster accident.
