Worst. Carnival Ride. Ever.

It looks like they painted it to show where the stress levels are at.

Maybe that's not paint -- just the metal heating up under friction/stress.

I would ride that ride.

Watching the video, I at first thought that the ride "failed" when one of the arms stopped and the other continued until I realized that it was designed to do that. Pretty amazing. Impressed with the engineering that went into creating such a ride! Awesome!

Could probably start a business selling vomit bags in a kiosk near that ride!

I think you're all insane. I would wet myself publicly standing in line for that thing, and probably pass out before I managed to get strapped in.

That ride is impressive - like someone took the Viking boat and put in on really bad acid
