Amazing Amusement Park Rides

From the Series So Big Compared to What?

Some amusement park rides are so extraordinary it’s difficult to appreciate their incredible size and speed. In Amazing Amusement Park Rides, kids will get lots of help in understanding the big numbers behind some of the world’s most awesome structures. For example, the Steel Dragon in Japan is the longest roller coaster in the world, covering 8,133 feet (2,479 m) of track. That’s just a number, but when you know that if the roller coaster were laid out in one straight line it would stretch across 27 football fields placed end to end, you have a better idea of what the number actually means! Packed with large, dynamic photos and fun facts, Amazing Amusement Park Rides is sure to delight young readers as they explore the numbers behind the world’s most incredible rides. Stat boxes on each spread provide a quick run-down of the key features of each building.
