The day dawned cloudy and cold but as time passed, the sun reached the Feria de Chapultepec, and Julien Dupont was ready to ride the roller coaster.
“I was very scared when I first saw the curves and height of the roller coaster, because I really did not know if my bike was able to get around the circuit”.
Everyone in La Feria de Chapultepec also were nervous and with good reason: The roller coaster in 2014 turned 50 years old. The carts that run are not motorized. Everything rises and falls by gravity only.
Julien and his trial bike were not considered when the attraction was designed half a century ago .
