For this field trip, we take a virtual trip with Discovery on Six Flag Magic Mountain’s Mega Coaster.
In the video, we take a ride on the Mega Coaster; virtually traveling over 60 miles per hour!
- Use the arrows in the video to get the full 360 degree virtual experience.
- This coaster speeds across over 4,000 feet of track.
- How might you build your own roller coaster? Use blocks, ramps, or recycled materials to create your own Mega Coaster! Use a toy car, marble, or other toy that rolls for the full experience. What can you do to make the roller coaster “car” travel faster? Slower?
Did you know that the fastest roller coaster in the world is in Abu Dhabi and travels almost 150 miles per hour? That’s more than twice the speed of the roller coaster in our video (below)!
