Science students design white-knuckle rides

Science students from Macclesfield College have been coming up with designs for new rollercoasters.

The students travelled to Disneyland in Paris for the project, which involved them attending two seminars and a workshop, looking at practical environment of a theme park, health and safety considerations and other factors impacting on rides for the public.

They were then tasked with designing their own ‘white knuckle’ experience, based on the information they had gathered, before presenting to an expert panel at the resort.

Lecturer Amy White explained “The students had to design a ride that would potentially replace Space Mountain and they had a target audience of age eleven years and upwards. They had to consider all aspects of the ride, its riders and have a ‘Disney’ focus.”
