Discovery Kids: Build the Scariest Roller Coast


Discovery Kids has its version of Roller Coaster Builder online. After your coaster is built, riders take it for a spin and tell you how scary it is. See how far you can push the fear-o-meter.

Other roller coaster builders online can be found at: PBSKids.org's Fetch: Whoa-ler Coaster and at Fundrstanding.com

The Discovery coaster designer is all about thrills while the latter two teach more of the science behind the rides.

  1. Very cool. But what about a warning that there would be screaming when you first go to the site. Very unnerving when I'm sitting alone in a very quiet room. haha. But I'm sure would be a big hit with the kids. I'm looking forward to showing the teachers back at my school. Thanks for sharing.

    I think the kids will have fun with this. Thanks for providing all these great links. I'll be back to check out more of them this summer as I look to revamp my lessons for the lab next year. Have you seen http://animals.nationalgeographic.com/animals/article/filmmaker.html ? My first and second graders are really having fun with it.
