The kids start out by building a Ferris wheel, carousel, pirate ship pendulum, bumper car, free-fall tower, and log flume ride! They then come across a big roller coaster in need of a lot of repairs. They test out ten different configurations of the roller coaster track pieces. They experiment with flat tracks, slopes, humps, bends, and even varying the weight of the car to see how the roller coaster car behaves differently in each setup. From each humorous segment of their silly adventure, the kids learn a simple physics lesson and collect a funny souvenir.
