Not sure if this is the right place to ask this. But I'm assuming roller coasters are related to engineering.

I know that in theory, the brachistochrone curve is the fastest way from point A to point B assuming no friction and air resistance, and I see a lot of articles talking about the brachistochrone curve and how it could be used for a roller coaster. But whenever I try to look for rollercoasters that use the brachistochrone curve, I can't find any. So that raises my question: do any rollercoasters use the brachistochrone curve?
