Danny Forster, host of Discovery Channel's new show, will tackle some of the newest wooden and steel coasters in the debut episode Wednesday.
If you're looking for your fix of thrill rides on your TV screen, Discovery Channel believes they have a solution for you.
A new series from the cable channel dubbed Build It Bigger premieres July 11 at 10 p.m. EST / PST with a reward for roller-coaster lovers in search of behind-the-scenes action relating to their favorite topic.
The show's goal is to take viewers on a tour of the world's ultimate construction projects each episode, and host Danny Forster will explore the first of those at amusement parks ranging from Busch Gardens Africa in Tampa Bay, Florida to Valleyfair in Shakopee, Minnesota during Wednesday's episode.
Forster, an acrophobic, will not only examine the construction of a modern wooden coaster structure at the site of Valleyfair's 2007 addition
, but also take on the heights of Busch Gardens' rides. Rather than experiencing the vertical-diving
for enjoyment, the host will focus on the coasters' mechanical aspect, touring backstage areas for a look at what maintains a ride's safety.
