Well we were going to town with making ours spin and when the ride came to a stop our seat continued to spin and pick up momentum. Our necks felt like they were breaking and there was no headrest. We could blurrily see my brother down below just trying to figure out what the heck was going on. I don't believe I've ever used such foul language in my life trying to get that carney guy to get us off. We finally did and vowed to never ride that again and I've never returned either.
Oh and that double ferris wheel scared me to death because you went so darn high!
Wow, what a story Pokey. I remember the octopus but I can't imagine what went wrong. The octopus was an OK ride and I recall that Six Flag over Texas even had the octopus ride in the mid 70's... As for the Ferris well, I kinda liked it. But I'm busting my brain trying to remember the "double" ferris well. I remember the name, but what was "double" about it? two seats per "node". If so, I remember a "triple" ferris well where three people sat side by side.
