Poseidon's Fury
Mission Statement
Phun Physiks, Inc. is dedicated to making high quality rides, that are safe, low cost, and easy to maintain, while maximizing profits and having our customers as our number one priority.
The Proposal
The Physics
To ensure the safety of the riders we needed to design the ride with certain specifications in mind, while still maintaining maximum thrill.
Phun Physiks, Inc. presents...
The ride starts from rest at the top of the hill. It then accelerates, and reaches a maximum speed of 15.3 m/s. It then slows down for the remainder of the ride until it comes to rest.
The maximum speed at the bottom of the hill is 18 m/s.
The time of the ride down the hill must be at least 4 seconds.
The total available length for the ride is 120 meters.
It takes the ride 5.2 seconds to go from the top of the slide to the bottom of the slide. The total time for the complete ride is about 18 seconds.
The Economics
The ride will be designed to minimize costs, while still preserving safety and maximizing profits.
The ride can be effectively run using only three people and assuming that the people are paid minimum wage, money is greatly saved on labor costs.
The ride will be made out of aluminum and steel, with rafts designed with a plexiglass floor for maximum enjoyment. The ride is designed to be durable and therefore minimizing maintenance costs and maximizing profits.
Complimentary Sales
The ride will bring in an abundance of other sales and will greatly increase revenue. The more people who use the ride, the more people that will buy souvenir photos of their experiences. Also there is a direct correlation between the sale of concessions and the use of the ride that will increase revenue.
An investment in advertisement promoting this new and exciting ride will increase attendance at the park and create a park-wide spike in sales.
Customer Satisfaction
Customers will be thrilled by this fast-paced water ride and will leave positive reviews about the park on social media and so on. These reviews will bring in increased attendance for the park and greatly increase revenue.
We designed a water flume ride with a height of 16 meters, a slide length of 40 meters, and a total distance of 119.7 meters.

The Math
In order to ensure maximum safety we had our top minds at Phun Physiks, Inc. complete the math and explain it in a step-by-step process within your handout.
