Roller Coaster Angles


Below is a picture of the Behemoth at Canada's Wonderland amusement park. The park claims that this ride has a 75 degree drop. Try to determine if their claim is true or false.

What angle did you find the drop to be?

What geometric objects did you use to determine the exact angle of the drop? How did you use these objects?

How can you be sure that your method is accurate? Could there be a way to make your estimate more accurate?
