Feel the Force (Forces and Materials) – £1.25 (KS1 KS2)

Let our Education Team whisk your children off on a stunning tour of the park. This hugely popular workshop looks closely at forces and how they affect the rides. Children get the chance to experience our rides and discuss the forces acting on their body. There are so many forces behind our rides – some are very helpful to a theme park and some aren’t! By the end, children will be able to identify them and explain where they appear in a theme park, making links between forces and the materials used on our rides.
