Amusement Parks

CoasterDynamix Mini Amusement Park

CoasterDynamix Mini Amusement Park

CoasterDynamix is known for its miniature roller coaster models. But in this video, they show off working O-scale versions of a tumbler and spinning rocketship amusement park rides. They also make a teensy ferris wheel, and a LEGO-compatible roller coaster.

Six Flags Cyborg Cyber Spin Ride

Six Flags Cyborg Cyber Spin Ride

Six Flags Great Adventure in New Jersey has a new ride at its Metropolis section. Called the Cyborg Cyber Spin, the ride will make you wonder which side is up with its dizzying three-axis twists and turns. The dude in the middle in the demo video looks like he’s had enough.

LEGO Minifig Roller Coaster

LEGO Minifig Roller Coaster

LEGO fanatic Shadow Elenter created this sweet Technic setup – a thrill ride for Minifigs that combines elements of a roller coaster, a spinner, and other amusement park rides in a small footprint. This should be an official LEGO Technic set. POV footage at 1:45.

Slidewheel Water Slide

Slidewheel Water Slide

Water slides can be fun, but they take up a lot of real estate – especially if you want to build up any speed. Thrill ride maker Wigand Maelzer is testing an insane new water slide that spins like a ferris wheel, providing faster, longer rides in a very small space.

Drone vs Roller Coaster

Drone vs Roller Coaster

We just saw a sweet video of a drone chasing down a locomotive, and now we have another awesome bit of aerial acrobatic footage as a quadcopter does its best to keep up with a couple of thrill rides at France’s Nigloland amusement park. (Thanks Hugo!)

Rollercoaster Zipline

Rollercoaster Zipline

If flying down a zipline isn’t thrilling enough, Skywalker Adventure Builders‘ crazy ride suspends a bendy track from an overhead structure, adding twists and turns to the mix. We’re not sure if it’s made by the same guys, but this one in Australia is 2.5 mi. long.

Worst Amusement Park Ride Ever

Worst Amusement Park Ride Ever

Ever ride one of those tilting, spinning amusement park rides? Now imagine the same idea without seats or harnesses. The Tagada not only look horribly unsafe, we can only imagine that its riders leave with bruises, broken bones, and their lunch anywhere but in their stomachs.

Endless Slip ‘N Slide

Endless Slip ‘N Slide

In celebration of Australia Day 2017, some folks set up the most ridiculous Slip ‘N Slide ever – by creating a ring-shaped path and a merry-go-round like contraption in the middle to drag riders atop its soapy surface.

Spa-musement Park

Spa-musement Park

The city of Beppu in Kyushu, Japan has apparently come up with one of the silliest ideas for an attraction: an amusement park spa. This is going to result in breakthroughs in sanitation and towel-tightening technology.

Jet Ponies

Jet Ponies

(LOUD) Imagine a merry-go-round that spins its passengers around at breakneck speeds, propelled by jet engines, and you’ve got this insane thrill ride. Madagascar Institute created this crazy thing a few years back, and so far, it hasn’t killed anyone.

Pedal-Powered Roller Coaster

Pedal-Powered Roller Coaster

Located at the Washuzan Highland Amusement Park in Okayama, Japan, the Sky Cycle roller coaster does away with winches and motors, and instead makes riders raise their already increased heart rates by pedaling the whole way. Who needs guardrails anyhow?

The Sound of Slingshot Silence

The Sound of Slingshot Silence

YouTuber TeamZoo took that viral video of the emotionless Slingshot rider and added Simon and Garfunkel’s classic The Sound of Silence, the most perfect soundtrack you could have for this man’s apathetic journey through life.

Untethered Freefall

Untethered Freefall

The Sky Tower is an insane amusement park attraction at Denmark’s Tivoli Friheden which lets daredevils freefall backwards 100 feet into a net below at speeds up to 55mph. What could possibly go wrong?

Dinoconda Roller Coaster

Dinoconda Roller Coaster

An insane “4th Dimension” ride located in China, the Dinoconda not only follows the twists and turns of its track, but spins riders in loops in their own seats. Oh, and it starts out backwards. Better skip lunch before this one.

Slingshot Screamer

Slingshot Screamer

A man rides a giant slingshot and goes into a hilarious conniption. At least he managed to stay conscious. Giant slingshot rides… bringing out the little girl demon in every grown man.

Slingshot Freakout/Passout

Slingshot Freakout/Passout

(NSFW:Language) While the girl’s reactions might seem over-the-top, watch the guy on the left – who passes out mid-ride and wakes up with no clue how he got there. Q: How was that guys? A: It was OK.

Don’t Sleep at Amusement Parks

Don’t Sleep at Amusement Parks

So this is why they call it an “amusement” park. You could say our laughing along just encourages mean behavior, but then again, what kind of kid falls asleep when there’s roller coasters to ride?!
