If this your first time using an amusement park together with your students, this may be an adequate level of ambition. Consider adding one of the rides for deeper investigations in the class.
When you have built more experience with class visits in an amusement park, you can also choose to let the students work in groups of 4-6 students focusing on a couple of rides.
On this www page you find suggested worksheets for six different groups, at two levels of difficulty. Let the students write a short report and present the results to each other and discuss their findings
