    I had a maths textbook that also had that white roller coaster from the beginning on its cover, and somewhere inside the book there was a red Intamin I think, as an illustration for a exercise/problem. Since I finished school I don't have that book anymore though.

    Soooo many maths and physics textbooks I had at school had pictures of coasters in them but they never had any actual relevance to anything in the book. Swizz.

    I've yet to see a school physics textbook that doesn't contain a picture of a rollercoaster. 90% of them are Vekomas or similar-looking rides too...

    Slightly off topic, but when I was at Knotts, it wasn't until I was actually riding Jaguar that I had that startling revelation:
    "Hey! This is the Channel 4 ad!"

    I guess Diving Coaster Vanish is better than the usual nauseating family these things come with.

    "up and down ride" - they could have at least found something with a bit of airtime to illustrate that. Heathens.

    If only there were some kind of commonly used phrase for this. I'm sure if you made one, you could illustrate it with an appropriate picture

    That's because you film things in Los Angeles, lol.
    Even CSI:NY was filmed in Los Angeles.
