Mirabilandia is transformed into a huge open-air laboratory and offers students the unique opportunity to observe and experience the practical applications of physics concepts, carrying out experiments on the Park’s attractions.
The experiences we offer students are 100% original and difficult to repeat in any context other than Mirabilandia.
At Mirabilandia you can “learn while having fun” by performing experiments you can’t do in a school laboratory. The Park is a real-life environment in which the laws of physics are learned and the separation between what we study in school and real life is reduced, from theory to practice. Students collect data themselves, directly onboard the attractions using smartphones made available by the Park. Subsequently, guided by the tutor, they reflect on the bodily sensations experienced, and analyse the data collected to understand the motion of the attractions and the forces at play.
The educational course includes the study of 2 attractions, subject to availability, from the following options:
This educational course is based on the “Desmo Race” ride. An interactive rollercoaster with two parallel tracks to test yourself in a moto GP race!
Uncover the most surprising and fascinating aspects of riding a motorcycle.
We will analyse:
control of the bike when turning corners;
Inspired by Formula 1, this rollercoaster stands out for its magnetic launch system that replaces the classic towing chain on the first incline.
Two towers ideal for analysing the sensations experienced when subjected to strong accelerations, tackling the problem of motion from different reference systems and making speed and height measurements. Activities include:
Katun has a vertical loop and various twists; due to its structural characteristics it’s particularly interesting for the study of mechanical energy in physical phenomena.
The classic horse carousel is a precious opportunity to repeat the Foucault pendulum experiment and analyse motions in rotating systems.
We descend quickly, aquaplaning onboard a rubber dinghy along a wavy slide. What forces work for and against the descent? What energies are in play?
Due to its specific characteristics, this attraction is especially suitable for studying motion from a kinematic viewpoint.
Divertical, the tallest watercoaster in the world, and El Dorado Falls allow us to study the characteristics of rollercoasters and discover the role of water on motion.
An attraction set in an Old West mine, full of ups and downs and unexpected twists and turns.
This rollercoaster plays with kinematics and dynamics...double track.
The choice of attractions is made according to availability at the time of telephone booking.
