Insane Flat rides

^Flying 'Circus'.... Circus is an understatement.

That thing is just ridiculous! Still, I want to ride one at least once... and they must play Britney Spears Circus the whole time too :p

A Frisbee isn't odd or unusual to me. I operated the one at 6FGAm a bunch, as it was part of my home unit: Eagle/Revolution

The term Frisbee is used too freely. The inward facing Frisbee's (Huss Frisbee) are horrible, but the outward facing (Intamin Gyro Swing) are amazing, and I could ride them all day long.

What in the actual WORLD was that? That contraption sure looks insane... <3

And about the Frisbees, the ones made by Huss operated in manual mode can be utterly intense. I rode La Máquina at Parque de Atracciones de Madrid on a quite a day and the op must have been bored because he gave us an insane cycle spinning both ways at top speed then swinging with the gondola locked like a huge pirate ship... It lasted forever and I loved it (so did my stomach xD)

But that one can only be operated automatically, thus making the experience much tamer...

Anyone seen this?

It's essentially an astronaut g-force machine by KMG. It doesn't sustain the g's (going back to the Nemesis topic), but I'd like to give it a go.

Interestingly, it's the first "green" amusement park ride (or at least that's what KMG claim). The braking system feeds into super-capacitors to help power the ride and all the lights are low voltage LEDs.

The thing is, on paper, that sounded amazing. I really wanted to ride it. But, seeing it in action, it looks VERY dull indeed. KMG make some fabulous attractions, with the right operator, this could be wonderful and so intense, it's jut a shame an ape was running the one in the video above.

It needs to go fast for longer, as I can imagine it getting quite repetative and boring, and bit like them annoying Jumping Frog things.

Not exactly insane, but it is new. And a complete waste of money IMO.

That's ridiculous, why on earth do that? It seems absolutely pointless.

Whilst stopping by Dunes Leisure the other day, I noticed this strange contraption:



Never seen anything like before (though it does remind me a little of that Fireball at Adventure Island).

This looked about 30 years old, had OTSR's and was pretty rusty.... Unfortunately, no one even went near it so I never got to see it run.

^ No matter how many times I look at those photos, I can't work out properly what it does. It obviously spins and raises, the cars are free, but that's all I can see..... Lol!

It's just an Enterprise where you face outwards...
