We welcome you to Amuse Me: A
Website on the Physics of Amusement Parks. Although millions of people visit these
thrilling places, very few realize that each is one of the "world's largest physics
labs". Without this knowledge, many people still have questions about their riding
experience: What powers the roller coaster? What keeps a Ferris wheel steady? What cause
the feeling of weightlessness?
being pushed forward? The answers to
all these questions and much more are contained on this site! For those who don't care for
roller coasters and such will still find the physics information useful. So, we encourage
everyone to board the ride, buckle up, and enjoy the ride!
