Amusement Park BetrayalMystery teasers are little stories where you need to figure out what happened based on the given clues.
A father took his sons to an amusement park one day. He told them to meet him at the entrance at 9:00 P.M. later that day. When the kids finally showed up at the end of the day, it was 9:45 P.M. The father said that he was angry and wouldn't take them again for a whole month. One of the boys said, "Wait, it wasn't our fault! We were on a roller coaster, but as we went down the first hill the engine blew out!" After thinking for a while, he grounded the boys. How did he know they were lying?
AnswerRoller coasters don't have engines; the tracks first help the cart to go uphill (uptrack), then when the slope comes, gravity and momentum does the rest.

Hey ... ISG .... good mystery teaser.
I rated it tops for fun.
Not everyone knows that about roller coasters, although I understand some of the VERY early ones (1800's) were powered with little steam locomotives similar to cog-driver railroads !!!
(just kidding !!)
Congrats on teaser #02. Keep 'em coming.
