Tagline: Ride Sensurround

Plot: Originally augmented with the Sensurround technique to simulate the thrills of its title, "Rollercoaster" spins a tale of one man holding thousands of lives at stake.

A quiet man with a deep understanding of explosives, rollercoasters and electronics -- and possibly a traumatic history in the Vietnam War -- targets the patrons of an amusement park for his million-dollar extortion scheme.

He informs federal agents and the owners of the park that he has planted a bomb and he demands $1,000,000. When they call his bluff, he detonates a device on a popular rollercoaster that sends cars and riders hurtling off the tracks.

The authorities then call on the one man who can outsmart the bomber... and prevent any other losses.
