Spinning rides are microcosm moments of life as we know it... packed together, doing like, blankly staring at the same nothingness, yet completely disconnected from those who spin with us.

Close encounter of no encounter.

    Used to love this kind of ride; still would go if there were one near us. As near to flying as you can get!

    Can't believe this isn't hot. Presentation makes the experience very fundamental (as it does the viewing experience).
