Safety information by device type

Amusement ride / Enterprise

Up to two people sit in one of 20 gondolas arranged in a circle, one in front of the other. The ride moves counter clockwise, dispelling a slight amount of centrifugal force. A hydraulically-powered arm underneath the ride then raises and tilts the frame so that the ride is rotating at 87 degrees from the horizontal, transforming the ride from a horizontal experience to a vertical one.
