This video is great for kids! My 6 year old is glued to the screen and comes away with an understanding of some simple principles of physics.

A Kid's Review on January 17, 2008
Format: DVD
This video is so cool! I was expecting it to just show roller coasters and how fast they go, but no.....it gives you the whole history of roller coasters!

It shows you:

-Roller coaster safety
-Why you can't fall out of a loop
-Gravity....and much more

This video is great for any kid at any age!

My 9 year old grandson and 5 year old granddaughter loved this video. Even as an adult, it held my interest and the kids learned some basic physics concepts without them even catching on that something educational was happening. :-)

Popular Mechanics for Kids: Rip-Roaring Roller Coasters and All Access to Fun

Another interesting group of programs. Be a clown, join Circue du Soleil, find out how they make rides safe and fun.
What makes us get motion sickness? Get this dvd and learn.
My 5 year old boy loves these programs. The first two were so enjoyed I bought the rest of the series.
This was a series on tv at one time, apparently. I hope they package the rest of the programs because the show was fab.
Each dvd has 4 episodes that are somewhat related. The 2 kid hosts explore different aspects of each subject.
Some are surprising but all are interesting, informative and professionally made.
In earlier reviews of this series I forgot to mention that grown ups find these programs interesting as well.
My husband and I love them as well.

This is a great movie!
It teaches you how to have lots of fun at a theme park{without getting motion sickness}.
And if you've seen other Popular Mechanics for Kids videos, you know about Charlie's Tip{which usually has an expiriment, as well as a tip},and Mechanix, with Nix and Tix.
But on the other hand, if you have'nt seen any Popular Mechanics for kids videos, then I suggest you watch this one, and other videos in the series.
I hope you like it as much as I do!
Because this is one of my favorite non-fictional science series.
And I hope you think so, too.

My 6 and 8 year old boys love learning about roller coasters, especially some of the science and engineering involved with their design and construction. This video delivers for that, and my boys have watched it many times. Having kids as hosts on the video is great, too.
