Simple-to-follow, step-by-step instructions for constructing a Minecraft theme park, including a bouncy castle, water ride, haunted house, ferris wheel, roller coaster and animal park. Read about STEM (science, technology, engineering, mathematics) topics in the real world, then put your learning to use within the game, discovering the differences between real life and the Minecraft world. Using core STEM principles, this book will take you through the process of designing and constructing your own Minecraft theme park - from calculating area when building your rides and understanding the different properties of the materials available to you, to learning how gravity and friction affect the speed of your roller coaster. At the end of the book you will have created one amazing theme park, complete with multiple attractions, ticket booths and lighting.
