    Miniature roller coaster within the day

    Hi,
    I would like to know what "It's almost felt like a miniature roller coaster within the day" mean here. Is it referring to a day with many ups and downs? Thank you.

    They were still reeling from the devastating news the day before, when a grim-faced Malaysian Prime Minister confirmed their worst fears, announcing Flight 370 went down somewhere in the Indian Ocean. Then, even as investigators seemed closer than ever to finding traces of the plane, stormy weather forced Australian authorities to call off a day of searching for the Boeing 777. "It's almost felt like a miniature roller coaster within the day," said James Wood, whose brother Philip was one of three American passengers on the plane.

    Yes- there was bad news with the confirmation, a slight lift with getter close to finding traces, then down again with the weather.
