“In all, we used 174 kidney stones of varying shapes, sizes and weights to see if each model worked on the same ride and on two other roller coasters,” Wartinger said. “Big Thunder Mountain was the only one that worked. We tried Space Mountain and Aerosmith’s Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster and both failed.”

Wartinger went on to explain that these other rides are too fast and too violent with a G-force that pins the stone into the kidney and doesn’t allow it to pass.

“The ideal coaster is rough and quick with some twists and turns, but no upside down or inverted movements,” he said.

It would be nice if that worked for stones in the salivary gland, that feels like you have a knife in your throat.

I had kidney stones and I was popping pain killers like candies (tramadol)... that's such a pain... good that I could break them and pass them... but the pain is unbearable... sorry for those who are going through this now.
