Kids can ride a trackless train, play carnival games, ride a mini-Ferris wheel, take aim at the dunk tank, make a roller coaster-themed craft, and test marble roller coaster
Explain to students that engineers design roller coasters
by considering gravity, potential and kinetic energy, and acceleration.
The Great Depression marked the end of the golden age of roller coasters
, and theme parks in general went into decline.
Armed with a good working knowledge of Dassault's CATIA multi-platform suite and the SOLIDWORKS CAD platform, Schmotzer's next decision was which roller coaster

Lead design engineer Daniel Schoppen explains what makes Red Force possible "The key enabler to achieving the fastes and highest coaster in Europe is down to our engineering and development of a particular type of electric motor, the linear synchronous motor (LSM)." While LSMs have been used to accelerate roller coasters
for 20 years, it has only been in the past several years that the overall system has matured to the stage where it is powerful enough to provide the launch acceleration demanded by Ferrari.
To test whether the roller coaster
does encourage the natural passing of kidney stones, the researchers used 3-D printing to create a model kidney, which they filled with urine and three kidney stones of different sizes.
It is also possible to ride the roller coaster
