How Does a Gyro Drop Ride Work?

The main structure of the gyro drop includes the frame and cockpit. On the one hand, we mount the frame on the chassis by slewing bearings. On the other hand, the cockpit is mounted on the frame. The circular cabin, capable of carrying many passengers, is suspended by wire ropes. Hydraulic gears pull the pulleys to lift the cockpit and move it up and down the frame. Moreover, the rotating motor drives the slewing bearings to rotate through the gear transmission. Thereby the freefall drop ride’s frame and the cockpit can rotate around the vertical center line.

The free fall experience impresses passengers. Besides, because of the height of the tower ride, visitors can see it from a distance. Thus, a giant drop ride can be a landmark in your park, or even your city. A Ferris wheel amusement park ride and a crazy park roller coaster for sale also can be a landmark.
