Movie Reviews

Great for Kids
Mary Kwiatkowski | Chester Springs, PA USA | 09/09/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"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."
Good, but not great...

"My child says he learned a lot from this video, primarily about maintenance of roller coasters. He said he also learned from the interviews with the people who designed the roller coasters. However, he likes video footage from the front seat on roller coasters and there was little of this."
Informative and interesting series

"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."
I Love Roller Coasters

"This video is so cool! I was expecting it to just show roller coasters and how fast they go, but 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!"
