Do you have any pictures of the 'Tilt-A-Whirl' at Whalom Park? Would you like to share them with the world? If so, email them to: email@example.com
The 'Tilt-A-Whirl' is one of the best-known flat rides, designed for amusement parks, fairs and carnivals where it is commonly found. The ride was manufactured by Sellner Manufacturing.
The Tilt-a-Whirl is a platform-type ride, consisting of seven freely-spinning cars that hold four (sometimes three) riders each, which are attached at fixed pivot points on a rotating platform. As the platform revolves, parts of the platform are raised and lowered, and the resulting centrifugal and gravitational forces on the cars cause them to spin in different directions and at variable speeds. The weight of passengers in these cars may intensify or dampen the spinning motion of the cars, adding to the unpredictable nature of the motion.
