About the event

Your children will never think about roller coasters that same after STEM physics comes to life in this fun-filled adventure at Knott's Berry Farm! 

They will learn about and experience energy in motion through the breakdown of the creative and mechanical engineering behind Knott's Berry Farm's various rides and attractions. Your student will gain a greater understanding of the science behind roller coasters and will discuss subjects such as centrifugal force, mass, inertia, and more while they experience how each concept relates to the rides.

There will be three different age groups with about five attractions that they will study (and ride!) during the tour. Knott's physics STEM instructors, and HFAC leaders/parent chaperones will be with students for the entire tour. Students and chaperones will participate on rides and will have the option of not riding something they may not be comfortable with. 

Before and after the tour, students and families can stay and enjoy the park for the rest of the day!

Parents are not required to attend the tour. If you would like to drop off your student with an HFAC chaperone, please let us know and we will accompany them from 1pm-3pm for the tour!
