Mega Whirl

This looks like fun:



The manufacturers say that is on the "family" setting, and that prodcution models will go faster too! :D

Yes, West Texas Trip. You can see Illinois and I climbing the stairs at beginning of video. :D

It was an interesting and needs some tweaks but a fun ride. The "family" setting sounds about right.

It looks like a Mangels Whip attached to a classic Pretzel Ride track. I'd love to see it go faster but it looks like fun.

Have Fun

Yeah, it's a cross between a whip and a tilt-a-whirl. I'm a bit surprised they didn't crank it up to intense given the riding clientele, but c'est la vie. :)
