This totally reminds me of playing Roller Coaster Tycoon growing up. The off-the-shelf roller coasters tended to be easier and cheaper to build and would often get better ratings than a coaster that was self-designed quickly. Yet, usually you had to have a flat area, or get lucky enough that the terrain would match the curves of coaster. Building a coaster that worked with the terrain was often much more difficult and expensive, but was usually much cooler.

Great article. If you want another crazy example of going under, over and around everything you should check out Phantasiapark in Germany. At the moment they are building a massive log ride in the middle of a very densely build theme park. They go very deep into the ground to get the best result. Here a making off video:
