Math and Science Days at Kings Island fun and educational

Cresting a 230-foot lift hill on the new Diamondback roller coaster at Kings Island is the perfect opportunity for students to experience curriculum in action, as one person’s trigonometry is another person’s terror.

Students from schools in Ohio, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan and West Virginia will have a chance to observe the speeds and angles of roller coasters and other rides during the 21st annual Math and Science Days at Kings Island on May 1, May 8 and May 15.

Our annual Math and Science Days at Kings Island help students learn that math and science are alive and well in the real world. They take the information and formulas learned in the classroom and see them come to life in real-world applications. It’s a field trip that’s fun but also educational.

Throughout the park, guests see students taking measurements, carrying Ziploc bags with calculators and activity papers, and gaining a new understanding of the practical side of what they learn in the classroom.
