Roller Coasters and Amusement Park Rides Workshop - Youth Register View Cart

Come build and take home your very own amusement park ride!  With the aid of your teacher and an instruction booklet, you will discuss, plan, and build these sensational rides just like real engineers.  Learn all about how roller coasters work, their basic physics behind them, and experience some real thrill and fun as you see your finished creations in action.  Watch your roller coaster go up, down, and loop around on some crazy inclines, twists, and turns all on its own by its mechanical motor.  Upon completion of this workshop, you will be in the midst of an entire exhilarating theme park and know exactly how each ride works!  Instruction by: Minds in Motion.  Limit is 10 per class.
