Do you want to go faster? Take a ride on the MINI Roller Coaster.

Anomaly launches the MINI Roller Coaster as part of their NOT NORMAL campaign for MINI.

To amplify the NOT NORMAL campaign and MINI’s undisputed go-kart handling, MINI Canada and Anomaly took directly to the streets. Through vigorous planning and with the help of Toronto-based production company Asymetric, three MINI Cooper S models were completely retrofitted to create a MINI Roller Coaster. The fabrication included the removal of the rear seats and parts of the roof, welding on new roller coaster frames, external speakers, custom roller coaster carts, bright and ambient LEDs, custom paint/decals, and wind blowers, which really showcased the hair-raising experience of driving a MINI even while stopped at traffic lights. With all the structural changes to the car, performance tests to ensure safety were conducted at the MINI Test Facility in collaboration with stunt driver coordinator Philippe Létourneau.

Once the MINI Roller Coaster was street ready, 3 professional drivers ripped through downtown Toronto with 2 riders on each car screaming at the top of their lungs. In addition to the ear piercing screams, a custom music track created by Didier Tovel from SNDWRX blasted through the exterior speaker system. The reaction? Torontonians laughing, smiling, and whipping out their phones and cameras to capture true excitement and the NOT NORMAL execution.

"The stunt was truly an unconventional and NOT NORMAL way to communicate the brand core of excitement.” Said Dave Douglass, Partner/ECD Anomaly. “We hope people take away that driving a MINI is an absolutely thrilling experience and its “corners like it’s on rails” abilities are completely unlike any other car.”
