There is a little known fact about Disneyland. Walt was very concerned about scaring "little" people, so he used the technique of forced perspective to create an illusion of height. Buildings along Main Street are built at ¾ scale on the first level, then ⅝ on the second story, and ½ scale on the third—reducing the scale by ⅛ each level up.
At CornerSpin, they use somewhat the same techniques. The track is miniaturized of all the infamous racing turns.
Nothing (ad)ventured, Nothing Gained
Everything you want is on the other side of fear.
