Blizzard

Round n’ round, up n’ down

Blizzard

This Flat Ride offers a multi-dimensional and varied riding experience for thrill seekers. 

The centrepiece of the ride is the hydraulically liftable and lowerable tower. A drive unit is installed at the top end of the tower, consisting of a combination of two slewing rings and a pivoting device. 

By means of this drive unit, the arm composite with 5 arms can be moved into a swaying wave movement. At the end of each arm, a rotating circular gondola will swing out freely.

As the inclination and rotational speed of the arm composite increases, the gondolas swing outwards following the centrifugal force. Depending on the individual (manual and / or automatically controlled) pre-selectable directions of rotation and speeds, the blizzard can be used to create varied driving sequences.
