About This Activity

Why do we like to ride rollercoasters? Many people think it’s for the thrill of speed. But for most people it's actually the twists, turns, drops and spins that keep us in line for hours to experience mere minutes of excitement. Learn about forces, energy transformation and mass relationship using the K'Nex building system to construct a large rollercoaster. Experience first-hand the design considerations in building a safe but thrilling ride. A behind the scenes trip to Waldameer will be the capstone of the course.
