Physics Day at amusement parks started over 25 years ago and participation continues to grow nationally. Amusement parks all over the country open their gates on a non-operating day, exclusively for physics students.

The students have access to one of the world's largest laboratories for carrying out real-world science experiments. Throughout the day there are opportunities for students to collect data using accelerometers on selected rides, participate in demonstrations, and enter contests for prizes.

We encourage teachers to prepare their students to make the most out of the opportunities at Physics Day.

Choose quality activities that will engage them and help them to learn more about the science behind their amusement park experience.
