The Physics of Theme Parks
Theme parks are what got me interested in the degree I'm studying for and so in this section I'm going share with you a little bit of the magic that is physics, and how it is used in the amusement park industry. I also hope to form a sort of technical encyclopaedia of roller coaster types, elements and manufacturers. Coaster enthusiasts can be obnoxious at the best of times when it comes to explaining what their ridiculous words mean, so hopefully this will be helpful and maybe a little interesting too!
