    Please explain the meaning of "We are at the roller coaster."
    Please note my corrections to your post.

    Your sentence would mean that you are near the roller coaster — probably in the queue (line) waiting to get on.

    Click here to see pictures of roller coasters.

    If you were riding the roller coaster, you'd say 'We are on the roller coaster'.

    Please note that a better title for your thread would have been We are at the roller coaster.

    Re: meaning

    It could also mean that things are suddenly changing from good to bad and back again.
