Host: The Coaster Queen, Jessica Robinson
Jessica Robinson, a roller coaster enthusiast since she was barely tall enough to ride, has an adventurous spirit and unbridled enthusiasm that make her your perfect companion for a behind-the-scenes tour of the world’s greatest amusement parks.
As a student in her native Australia, Jessica loved science and had a particular interest in learning how things work. Her fascination became an obsession when Jessica, at nine years old (and finally 42” tall), bravely hopped onto a double-loop coaster known as “The Corkscrew.” The wonderful contradictions of anticipation and fear, g-forces and weightlessness, screams and laughter, and rapid acceleration and sudden braking empowered Jessica to expand her mental and physical boundaries and leave her comfort zone at the boarding station. But most
importantly to her, it was simply a blast!
Jessica’s childhood was peppered with trips to theme parks, fairs and water parks across Australia, all to quench her desire for that next adrenaline rush. Then, at age 13, Jessica and her family drove an RV across America, exploring theme parks and roller coasters in Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Chicago and Orlando. When she wasn’t riding the real
thing, Jessica’s video game of choice was Roller Coaster Tycoon, a theme park and roller coaster design simulator that gave her a better understanding of what goes into building these magnificent machines.
This talented, brainy and beautiful roller coaster expert has it all: a winning personality, great on-camera presence and an infectious passion for the hills, drops and loops of the coaster world. Jessica Robinson has definitely earned the title of Coaster Queen!
