    roller coaster car

    What do you call the thing you sit on while taking a ride in a roller coaster? (car, wagon?)

    And could I say this:

    - The roller coaster cars had already been "launched", but this was noticed only by me?

    Thanks.

    I would call it a "car".

    I don't think I would use "launched" there.

    Try: The roller-coaster cars had already started moving, but I was the only one who noticed. :wink:
