Each year, amusement parks worldwide try to one-up one another by building bigger, faster, and more intense amusement rides. Sinorides looks at some of the strangest, scariest, and most innovative non-roller-coaster rides here. And now, we will unravel the mystery of the 23-26 in the list of 30 strangest rides worldwide.

  1. Flowrider

Commonly found on cruise ships, the Flowerider will not care for you like other rides. To intimate a surfing or bodyboarding experience, the Flowerider constantly pumps a three-inch layer of water up a slope so you can stay in one place and ride the artificial wave. The ride makes for some pretty spectacular fails.

  1. Gravitron

A Gravitron is a wholly enclosed ride with the occupants leaning against padded panels and walls. The panels are angled back. When the ride reaches full speed, about 24 rpms, the centrifugal forces push the riders back against the pads and lift them due to the diagonal angle.

  1. Round Up

Another ride that makes use of centrifugal force to push you up against the back of a padded wall. After the spinning ride takes the weight off your feet and presses you against the rear panel, a hydraulic arm lifts and tilts the entire platform with riders firmly stuck to the wall.

  1. Screamin’ Swing

The Screamin’ Swing is a pneumatically powered pendulum ride first operated in 2004. The two long swinging arms can operate individually or in conjunction, swinging in opposite directions. There are sears on both sides of each swing. Air compressors pump air into tanks within the arms, and this movement triggers actuators and cables that produce motion.
