Are you looking for a single spot to get all the answers before ordering a pendulum ride for your amusement park?

If YES, you are in the right place.

We have covered all the frequently asked questions by amusement park owners looking to install a pendulum ride or import one from china.

Let’s get started with this “Pendulum Rides – The Complete FAQ Guide” and answer all of your questions.

What is the Pendulum Ride?


What is Pendulum Ride

What is Pendulum Ride

Pendulum Rides are among the most loved rides at amusement parks like any Roller Coaster or Ferris Wheel.
A Pendulum ride is based on the motion of a fixed pendulum.
The configuration of the ride consist of three parts:
1) Gondola
2) Arm
3) Axle

The arm works as an attachment between the passenger-carrying gondola and the axle.
Pendulum rides use one of the two methods to perform the motion:
1) Series of DC motors driving the axle
2) Wheels at the base of the station pushing the gondola as it swings by

How Does The Pendulum Rides Work?

Basically, Pendulum rides work like a pendulum on the clock, which moves back and forth.

However, with time, pendulum rides have evolved a lot and now use different techniques to work.

Generally, a Pendulum ride consists of an arm attached to a fixed point (axle) at its top, hanging downwards, while the base of an arm has cars or gondolas attached to it.

A series of DC motors attached to axle or wheels placed below the gondolas on the ground gives driving force to the gondolas to swing.

In some designs, the arm of the pendulum swing extends beyond the axle, having gondolas at the bottom end, and counterweight at the top. The counterweight helps the gondolas to swing.

Additionally, some latest Pendulum rides also feature a revolving gondola, and even gondolas make a complete 360-degree swing.
