Welcome to Amusement Park Physics

Amusement Park Physics offers a great way to investigate principles of physics by examining the laws as they occur in amusement rides. Find out how free fall rides work, follow the directions on how to demonstrate the free-fall phenomenon, read about Newton’s laws of motion, and find examples of them in the amusement park. Many common rides are part of this park, including the roller coaster. Design your own to see if it passes the fun and safety tests. Topics covered are suitable for middle and high school physics students.
