    Which is the reaction to centripetal force (Newton`s third law). In a sense, centrifugal force isn`t a real force. So Tiredofnicks is right in that sense - this is caused by centripetal force.

    oh i remember this ride. it was funny because some friends and i split up to check out the fair and when we found out one of our friends was in this ride, we all waited for him to come out. when the ride was done and the doors opened, he was the only one that came out cuz he was the only one that went in lol. it must have been so awkward with just our friend and the guy in there lol.

    No this is caused by inertia, which is directly the centrifugal "force". That is not caused by centripetal force, it`s a bi-product of it.

    I`ve done this many times... I love this ride... And I agree with MndrBittles... Its WICKED rare to see. For those who look for it, it resembles a UFO on the outside, and goes by several different names.

    The platforms on the walls are on rails and are leaned backward. When the ride spins fast enough, the force pushes them up the wall. The Centripetal Force (not Centrifugal, look it up, science geeks) from the spin actually HOLDS you to the wall and you can even climb to your feet (though this is difficult when the ride is at full spin).

    @Taylor Stone
    You are incorrect about the science! The force which appears only occurs as the spinning rails are a non-inertial frame. The force which appears is an inertial force and is in fact known as the Centrifugal force (center fleeing). The centripetal comes from the normal force and is the only "real" force in the ideal case. Yes I am in physics and you can read this in "Classic Mechanics" by John R Taylor or on wikipedia probably.

    Apparently you don`t know that we can do "define: centripetal" as a web search. It is too easy to look up definitions these days to let a challenge like that one go by.

    "what the hell is with everyone denying the existence of centrifugal force? "

    Because as any physics textbook can tell you, centrifugal force does not exist. There is only centripetal acceleration as the result of other forces. The two are not the same.

    If you`re in the frame of reference of the rotating disk, then centrifugal forces do exist. They`re pseudo forces because nothing actively create them, they result in the process of transforming other forces to that reference frame.

    Something like that anyways.

    If such is the case, and the ride stops suddenly, this dude is in for a world of hurt. Thats about a 6 or 7 foot drop, landing face first on the steel flooring. (Sometimes they have wood, but the ones I`ve been on were all metal.) This is, ofcourse, if the ride doesnt have the hand rails that are about 4 ft from the walls. In that case, he`d be looking at bruised or broken ribs. In either scenario he may get away with little or no injury, but he`ll definitely be sore afterward.

    I was on this ride when I was a Kid. And you had walk up the outside then down the inside in order to get in, while doing that I notice a BIG boobed woman stuck to the wall and all she was wearing was a button down leather vest !!!....somehow or another the buttons came undone and WHAM the vest flipped to the side and her Boobies were flapping in the wind....She couldn`t do anything cause her hands were stuck to the wall!!!!

    There was a large cheer that was heard throughout the amusement park that day followed by FASTER FASTER FASTER!!!!

    I love the Gravitron, but as previous people have mentioned, that`s a lot harder than it looks to do. I would imagine taking the picture was probably pretty difficult to, as the motion would make you want to smash your hand (and the camera) into the padded slats.

    I went on one of these before and there was a hole in the ceiling of it and the carni told everyone not to stand up like that because some guy did and flew out of it and was in a coma for a while. Haven`t gone on one since.
