    you`d have to ride once in the center and again on the outside to get the whole experience

    doubt it`s feasible, the weight of those support structures would be immense, and I don`t think we have engines that can rotate that much weight, and if we do then they`d prolly use so much power that any amusement park would never use it.

    it looks like it would be rather boring if you sat by the axis, as you wouldn`t be moving very much...the best seats would be on the edge of the larger circle.

    This ride will never see production. It lacks the basic premise that carnival rides share: equal experience for all. Imagine waiting in a long line to get on this ride and ending up in that seat in the outer ring close to the pivot point. What needs to happen is that the rings need to rotate like a ferris wheel while they are flipping over.

    "This ride will never see production. It lacks the basic premise that carnival rides share: equal experience for all."
    Many many rides don`t have the same experience for all. Even roller coasters (front and back have a better experience) and many others. This gives you a choice: either a more conservative ride of a crazier one. I like it.

    I agree with these folks. You`d have to cut out some seats close to the axis, or add rotation on each ring. but that would use a poo ton of power

    I think this will always look a bit sketchy, so much so that no one would just riding it, or at least not enough riders to offset it`s costs.

    Looks kinda fun. It`s like two rides in one. It`d probably be less deadly and more feasible if the seats didn`t swivel or if the structure wasn`t as large. I`d ride it if it were safe.
