In this cosmological episode, Alice and Buddy dive into the ideas of Chaos, Control, and Determinism as they pertain to Theme Park Rides. How do various types of attractions offer chaotic experiences? What does the idea of chaos mean in rides that give their passengers a measure of control? Who controls a rider’s destiny on a ride?
