"Which attractive force propels the launch of Rock n' Rollercoaster at Disney's Hollywood Studios? Magnetism! In this program, the Walt Disney Imagineers demonstrate how they use magnets of all types throughout Disney's theme parks. From magnetic launchers that propel the Rockin' Rollercoaster from 0-100kph in 2.8 seconds, to the audio speakers in Pirates of the Caribbean, Imagineers employ the forces of magnetism in a variety of surprising ways. Students will learn about the attraction and repulsion of opposite poles, magnetic fields and domains, and electromagnets"--Container

"What is the force that puts the thrill in thrill rides? Gravity, of course! One of the biggest challenges for Imagineers in designing theme park attractions, like Disney's Rockin' Roller Coaster and The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror, is figuring out the best way to work with-and sometimes against-gravity's constant 1G force. Learn to define gravity and explain the relationship between gravity, mass, and distance. Apply an understanding of forces to explain the feeling of weightlessness on a rollercoaster ride"--Container

In this DVD, the Imagineers demonstrate how they use fluids to their advantage in constructing rides and attractions like Grizzly River Run and The Seas with Nemo and Friends.

They will also discover how fluid dynamics help us learn how fluids move and behave and also how fluids can be used to create mechanical advantage."--Container
