Answer

The magnitude of centripetal force on the person is the same at all positions.

Work Step by Step

The equation to determine centripetal force is: Centripetal Force=Mass$\times$($Velocity^{2}$/Radius) Mass, velocity, and radius are held constant throughout the entirety of this ride, so centripetal force is held constant at all locations as well.
