A model of a luge run is constructed. A slider races down the luge run at sixty miles an hour. A camera capable of generating the illusion of passing through a scene is designed. Finally, an animation, from the perspective of the slider, is presented. (Available only in the online edition of the The Mathematica Journal.)
