Yo-Yo is a kind of ride in which the guests seat in swing seats. They are then taken vertically in the air after which they are rotated to generate some swinging effect. Yo Yo offers families with a unique wave-swinger attraction experience. With the swings suspended from the top of a carousel, the guests get to experience a high-flying twirl for the most exhilarating flight experience.
For more than a century, swing rides have increased in popularity especially in amusement parks. However, the Yo-Yo is not the average swing. To begin with, the thirty two seats mounted on the ride are lifted to a certain height of the ground. After that, the yo yo ride begins to spread out. Once it is completely spread out, the ride begins to rotate and then tilts for the most exhilarating and soaring experience. Individuals who like soaring heights will be thrilled by this kind of ride. One thing about these rides is that they are odd. One reason behind this is that instead of the frame rising to lift riders from the ground, sweeps holding the swings rise in a horizontal position lifting the riders along. When at a full extension, riders are usually at fifteen feet above the ground. After assuming this horizontal position, it begins to spin just like a normal swing ride.
With the heights associated with these swings, safety of the riders is important and should be a priority. Without proper safety, it can be very easy to inflict damages and injuries. To begin with, it is important for the riders to have spinal and body controls to sit in an upright position without the help of other devices or people. It is important that riders have the right weight distribution for the ride.
Another safety aspect of this swing ride is that a rider must have not less than three function extremities. This could be two arms and one leg or two legs and one arm to brace themselves as they ride. Two functioning arms are just enough rather than three extremities if the rider bears normal center of gravity. Lower extremities are strong enough to maintain the right riding posture under all dynamic conditions of the ride. In case of amputation, it should be at the knee or below. In addition, all riders should be in a position to exit or enter the ride without endangering themselves or other people.
