Simply put, we love roller coasters and everything related to the amusement industry. We share that passion through writing about and documenting all of the happenings within the amusement world. Coaster101 went live on June 15, 2005, and although the website has undergone some cosmetic changes over the years, our goal remains the same: to bring readers interesting, engaging and dynamic content that relates to roller coasters and the amusement industry. The website’s home base is Memphis, Tennessee, but our team members are located across the United States. We feature in-depth technical articles about the latest roller coaster technology, interviews with amusement industry experts, detailed ride reviews, vivid roller coaster photography, video and much more. We love what we do, and we hope that you enjoy your time here. Got a question or comment? Contact us!
