    What are some strange rides you have seen or ridden?

    I don't know if a thread like this already exists, if it does, I'm sorry.

    Anyway, I was looking at fair rides the other day and I came around this particular ride that made me feel uneasy. Not so much uneasy, more confused than anything. It was similar to a FarFabbri Kamikaze. The ride was Mondial Tornado (Star Flyer) that had two arms that seemed to have minds of their owns... If you get what I'm saying. It was just strange seeing a classic pendulum ride not having both arms going in opposite directions in sync.



    Anyway, what are your opinions about this ride? I also want to see some other rides/roller coasters that may seem strange to you.

    Looks lethal ! Hah.

    On a trip to Texas Astrowolrd, some years ago rode this bad boy ... another rdie called Sky Screamer. A brief 10 storey, unpowered freefall, decellerating by lying you on your back. An old school drop ride from the 1950's I think, sticks in my mind very well.

    Ah, the first-generation Intamin freefall. The only one left in the US is Demon Drop at Dorney Park, formerly at Cedar Point. I was at Dorney Park earlier this month to try it out. To think Intamin went from that to straightforward drop towers.

    This one in Italy has a pretty cool effect:


    I'd like to see it in the game, but I think a Zumanjaro-style drop tower would be better. I'd like to see it with a launch option, like in Mystery Castle (Phantasialand).

    I have mentioned it before, but the Time Machine at Adventure Island, Southend-on-Sea. It is an in house created ride. It goes forces on that thing make me spin just thinking about it. I was spinning for hours after.

    Sorry I'm bad with official names but, I rode this ride that was similar to a "Round-Up" ride, except that instead of lifting and tilting, the floor dropped out below your feet. It went a bit faster than a round up, and it pinned up against the wall while your feet dangled in the air.

    there used to be a ride at my local park called the Gyrosphere, it was basically a "Scrambler" but it was inside of a domed tent, and there were laser light shows displayed with music and smoke machines while your rode it, it used to always have ELO music (the band)
