The Tourbillon, A Theme Park Ride That Twists Riders With a Set of Spinning Concentric Squares

tourbillon 2

The Tourbillon is a theme park ride built by ABC Rides in Switzerland that twists riders through the air with a set of spinning concentric squares. The ride bears a resemblance to the space travel vehicle seen in the 1997 film Contact, though the ride is presumably incapable of interstellar travel.
