Riders' legs dangle 400 feet up in the air in this vertical model of the traditional swing ride.

You'll be spun around in a circle until the thing reaches a velocity of 40 mph - and most riders are probably on the verge of fainting by then.2

Imagine being shut in a giant tumble-dryer, where nobody can hear you scream, when the spin cycle starts in earnest.
