One of our most famous historical rides
and good capacity explains the great success that it gained up to now all over the world: more than 150 units have been manufactured and sold everywhere.
The ride is made up of a central column supporting two swinging arms. On each side of the arms a vehicle is fixed, while at the other side a counterweight is connected. Its movement is basically very simple, its arms swing up progressively to the top and at the end it makes a complete rotation.
Passengers are seated inside the vehicle, whose safety is guaranteed by overhead shoulder bar and a double locking system.
