Physics, Science and Math Days

Physics, Science and Math Days

The principles of physics come to life as California's Great America offers special days where the amusement park is turned into the world's largest classroom. 

Physics, Science & Math Days offer special presentations, educational activities, demonstrations, contests, hands on exhibits and more from our educational partners. Students will learn the laws of physics in motion and discover how math and science apply to amusement park excitement.

These days occur on private operating days, and will have limited operation. The hours are 9am-5pm.
