Did you ever wonder why riders on a looping roller coaster stay in place when the ride is in motion? Through a partnership with Rockwell Automation, STEM influencer Jay Flores tests Newton’s first law of motion and applies it to the beloved Rougarou roller coaster at Cedar Point Amusement Park in Sandusky, Ohio. Students can try the experiment shared in this video at home using cardboard, paper cups, and string.

The “It’s Not Magic, It’s Science” video series was created in partnership with Cedar Point as a part of the park’s student and youth programming
