Riding this was a rite of passage for kids waaaaay back in the late 50s. Out here in Calif. we called it The Hammer. There were several of these awsome contraptions making the rounds for many years. I remember when the Kemsley shows had them and they were in their resplendent original colors. It took me a long time to get up the guts to ride this beast; and then, as often happens, the actual experience was much less frightening than the imaginings. I remember the sound of the huge chain as it whirred around its sprockets. Once I was initiated, I rode this thing every chance I got. It was only 25 cents back then. I have actually seen this old veteran out here a couple of times in recent years, but it was indifferently painted a solid white and was quite battered and bruised from all of the decades of use.

I was kind of afraid to ride this at first. Before coming to Sylvan Beach, I had never seen anything like it. The closest thing to it, I thought, was the zipper and the zipper is probably the most dangerous ride in the world. Even though this one has clearly seen better days, I still like it and I think its fun, especially having the option to flip or not. I mean, somedays, you just want to act like its a lame ferris wheel and you can. You get a good view of the park and you dont have to flip, but when you want to, oh YES, you can. And it feels safe. I give it a 9 for the novelty, the upkeep, and the flipping. Ill usually go over three times a ride.
