Flip cams and others like them are not the best at fast action shots. I have a all the flips, the three Kodaks, and some no name. I prefer the Kokak Zx1 because of the mic input as well as it's 1080/60 fps, where the flips only do 30 fps. Being able to shoot 60 fps really helps the quality. Also with the Flip cams, the part that "flips out" to connect via USB breaks on a lot of sets and it's not part of the warranty, so wasted money there.
As for using them for POV on a coaster... DON'T! Not safe and it's against park rules almost everywhere. If you want to get a good POV, the camera has to be bolted to the device that you're trying to get POV from. Holding it still doesn't work on rides, in cars, boats... Catch my drift?
As for shooting fun little movies, the flip cams are great. You also need an editing system that can edit video that's in 720 or 1080. Microsoft Movie doesn't do this. No clue if Mac Movie Maker works well, I hate Macs. I use my AVID Nitris System to edit everything, but that's about $50,000 to get up and running. The supped up Pennicle Program is now made by AVID and is a great home editing piece. It's only around $100.
