"So they took a silicone model of the human renal system filled with urine and kidney stones on the Walt Disney World Big Thunder Mountain Railroad in Orlando Florida.
They say the ride did help ease the passage of the stones through the silicon urinary tract.
The team considered using animals but deemed it inappropriate for the research setting."

Gah, I meant to post that the other day, and just got distracted long enough to forget. Pretty awesome! Congrats to them on the Ig Nobel Prize.

I've heard about this. Disney had no interest in participating in the study so the researchers just had to wait in line over and over and ride with the model kidney. Apparently Big Thunder was more likely to dislodge the stone than other roller coasters.
I like dark rides and I love tacos
