- to find the radius of the whirligig at top speed is the length of the chain PLUS the radius of the whirligig at rest.

- to find the radius of the whirligig at rest you must first find the circumference.

- to find the length of the chain you must first measure angle 1 by looking through the accelerometer to the top of the chain. Then move back 10 meters and measure angle 2 again looking through the accelerometer to the top of the chain.

-It fits about 48 passengers, if there is only one person per seat.

This is how the Whirligig looks at night.

This is probably the best swings i've ever been on.

The Whirligig looked very fun and I wanted to ride it very badly, but our group had just ate and I didn't want anything happening. I was also afraid that the dangling of my legs would further injure my sprained ankle which had happened only two days before. Maybe next time I go to Six Flags I'll go on it.

It's location is in Yankee Harbor.
I liked this ride and it's similar to the swings at Navy Pier.

The whriligig isnt that intense but its force is pretty great pushing the chains in a circular motion moving the chairs around the ride.
