Do you like to go to fairs or amusement parks and go on the rides? If so, you are not alone. Every year, tens of millions of people take the time to visit such attractions and enjoy all of the different rides. From the old favorites, such as roller coasters or carousels, to more modern types of rides, there are dozens of different varieties to choose from.
One type of ride that you may have seen is what is known as a Techno Jump ride. In some places, this may also be referred to as a “Jump and Smile” ride. You may even have gone on one of these rides without knowing what the proper name for it was.
This ride works basically along the same principle as a carousel or merry-go-round, but it has some additional features that make it more exciting. Like a carousel, the passengers ride on seats that go around and around the center of the ride.
However, unlike a carousel, the seats are mounted on arms that come out from the center, like the arms of a starfish. As the ride spins around and around, the arms go up and down at seemingly random intervals. This shakes the passengers up and down when they are not expecting it.
In the Techno Jump ride, the cars often go up in order. When they are at the highest point, they shake back and forth, and then drop unexpectedly. The ride also freezes so that the passengers think it is over before it switches directions and starts rotating backwards.
This is a very popular ride, and you may have been on one in the past. The next time that you go to an amusement park with your friends or family, see if there is one that you can go on.
