Monsunen - a Flying carpet

First, take a look at the ride in motion.

If you could bring a little slinky along, how do you think it will look during the different parts of the ride?

Take a look at the graph below, which shows the total "g-force" and the elevation for a similar ride at Gröna Lund, Stockholm.
  1. Is there any point during the ride where you will tend to lift from the seat?
  2. Do all turns take the same amount of time?
  3. Does the time for a turn affect the maximum force on the rider?
  4. At what part of the ride do you feel the heaviest?
  5. The lightest?
  6. Does the ride move with constant speed during a turn?

Note: The elevation data are based on air pressure measurements, causing an artificial elevation dependence on the speed.
