Amusement Park Physics This interactive exhibit, part of the Annenberg/CPB Project Exhibits Collection, explores how the laws of physics play a role in the design of amusement park rides. Activities in the exhibit invite visitors to design a roller coaster and determine the outcomes of bumper car collisions.
