You Scream, We All Scream for Roller Coasters!

Rippon Middle School Students Rownan C. and Mason G. at Kings Dominion Coaster Mania Competition

Calling all potential roller coaster engineers! All you need is a little math and science to understand what it takes to make your own gravity-powered roller coaster. Rippon Middle School eighth grade students had the chance to participate in Kings Dominion’s Coaster Mania competition where they designed and built a gravity coaster of their own. The coasters are on display for all park visitors to see and during the competition the students answer questions from Kings Dominion’s own engineers regarding their coaster and the design.

Congrats to Mason G. and Rownan C. for taking second place with their innovative coaster design.
