Never seen the first one, looks fun.
2nd one I've seen before and looks awesome to ride.
3rd one I've seen IRL but without the cage.


This ride was pretty cool.
Goes first swinging up, suddenly they lock the brakes and after a few cycles they unlock them again for crazy swinging.

That swing ride kinda reminds me of this:

Ferris wheel that flips upside down laterally. Actually looks like fun.

POV.

This one's really crazy. A Top Spin and a Frisbee had a baby. Are you sure they don't mean "von Barf?"
Cereal is soup. Change my mind.

^That one just looks awkward and a waste of energy. It looks like it completly ignores gravity
What are these for?

^That isn't a flat ride.

I think that weird topspin-discus thing looks cool. Very unusual. And the few cool5 posted are awesome.

It was meant to be a joke, which you two obviously didn't understand.

I'm pretty sure I've found a good number of obscure European carnival rides that could very well fit this topic, including a breakdance ride that flips riders upside down. And this. Hard to believe this was the same manufacturer that made the Windseekers at the Cedar Fair parks.

Anyone know what an Intoxx is? Besides the name of this ride, of course.
Also, I don't have a video of this, but I've been to a carnival that had a swinging ship type ride that looked like a Barbie car. Ew!

Joke or not, it was a bad one... Topic started out pretty good, and now we're ruining it with this crap.

Yups, I even rode that thing. Cool stuff and such. Altho, I'm more fan of the airwolf. Same type of ride, only then with a floor:

Screwed up because of what happened, but it's actually pretty hilarious.

This flat ride in Denmark. I wonder if anyone would be up for making that for NL2.

I greyed out on that ride pretty hard to be honest, wouldn't say my tolerance is super high but you are really reclined so you should be able to sustain the gforces better!

No? But it's quite awesome! I've ridden it several times. Really awesome seeing the world upside down at that height, slowly crawling a bit higher everytime until you finally make the single loop. :lol: (If only that counterweight was a bit heavier/longer. The balance would have been better and would allow the operator to do more full 360°'s.)

Riding Infinity with Connor and Mkingy was the peak of our Germany trip for me! (2 rides in a row because it didn't made the loop the first time) :)Amazing ride, amazing experience and view!
We should definitely do this again!

If everything goes to plan I have tried this ride after the weekend. It looks fun though!
