Q: In this roller coaster, the rail first goes up and reaches a high point, and suddenly it dives from there, and rotates once. Does this sound natural?
A: I would understand what you're saying but the rail is usually called a "track" for a rollercoaster. The round track is called a vertical loop or a loop-the-loop. I would also change "high point" to "peak".

I would say, "In this roller coaster, the track first goes up into a vertical loop, causing the riders to be upside down at the peak. From there it takes a sudden dive to complete the rotation of the loop."
Q: I have two sticky rollers in my apartment. They're called KOROKORO in Japanese. Sounds funny right? haha They're also really popular in Japan because Japanese homes are normally small. Does this sound natural?

There are at least 2 or 3 different kinds of mops. The one I have is a sponge mop.
I've never heard of a sticky roller, but it's certainly possible that other people have them and I'm just not aware of them.
I've never heard of anything that cleans both the floor and the carpet.

As for the sentence you were asking about, except for the word "also", you got it right.
