Humans are a funny species, aren’t we? Ever since the beginning, we’ve been obsessed with spinny things. From boomerangs to Beyblades, if it spins, we gravitate towards it. It’s no surprise, then, that the theme of spinning has always had a star role at the amusement park. Rides that spin around are the best, so if you’re looking for a thrill, here are some rides that spin fast… really fast!

The Rotor is where ordinary citizens become expert physicists. Well, not really: that kind of degree takes years of study. But it is the perfect place to become familiar with the ideas of gravity and inertia. Created in the late 1940s, this classic amusement ride spins you around in a giant cylinder, and you stick to its wall thanks to inertia. It’s super fun and you won’t be able to walk straight for a few moments afterwards.
The Claw is in a similar category to the Move It: it’s for high-speed-loving thrill seekers who want to be spun out of control. Riders sit in carriages and are spun around and upside down. Ride it if you dare.
