Y6- Science (Letter to Drayton Manor)

So far you have been asked to research, plan and create your roller coaster. (Might I just add how blown away we are by the creativity displayed by some of you! Big round of applause for the models we have seen)

Today your task is to write a formal (but persuasive) letter to Drayton Manor explaining why your rollercoaster should be part of their theme park.

In your letter you must discuss the physics & forces behind your rollercoaster and why people would want to ride it.
(Use your persuasive adverts from last week- but remember letters are formal so you will have to switch up your style of writing)

    I am a young inventor and I will really want to invest my roller coaster in your theme park. My roller coaster has a two metal layers for safety and none can fall off. The straps that hold from positioning the person that is riding the roller coaster are made from rubber. The ride consists of 15 people per ride. This ride will cost 3.50 pounds per child and 4.00 per adult (20+ yearsof age).

    Considering how popular your theme park is, I feel that this rollercoaster will thrive because of the high adrenaline at the start of the ride which will keep them hyped. And the loop de loop goes high in the air and then quickly flys down, and then at the end it has a tunnel which can spiral.

    I am a young inventor, my name is Riyad Uddin. After thorough research i planned and designed my own roller coaster. My roller coaster contains of a rail track that goes upwards, but slowly, But when returning back down, It will go kind of fast. Going up the roller coaster very fast isn’t good for the coaster itself. My roller coaster is also going to contain a medium sized loop, If it is too small, the coaster will start making people sick, and a big loop will also start to put pressure on the people’s stomach.
    To finish of my ride, It will have to go through a small cave, Which then it will return to its starting point.

  7. Dear Mrs Manor,
    I am a young inventor, my name is Raumaan Ahmed. After thorough research I planned and designed my own rollercoaster.

    My rollercoaster consists of a loop and a tunnel which finishes the ride.

    Considering how popular your theme park is, I feel that my rollercoaster will thrive because my roller coasters are for those that might want to ride a medium sized roller coaster if they are not up for big ones. But if the want a big one mine is a medium sized one so it will still work for people who wants giant roller coasters. At the start of my ride my consists of a straight line to gain power after that it uses the power to execute the loop at the end it finishes of with a tunnel.

    In my roller coaster it has a height limit because the ensure the safety of fellow people like us. The seats are the perfect size to fit in with the height limit so this can ensure comfortable seats and a ride which will make them keep coming. As you are thinking what if it doesn’t function properly well it will because I have ran tests on a model to ensure the correct amount of speed and power to complete the roller coaster.

    As I have shown you all my pints on why it is good and deserves to be in your park. As it will make u millions. You should accept my roller coaster into your park as it is beneficial for both of us. Thus this is my letter hope you get it and consider my point of view for my roller coaster.

    Yours sincerely
