I know what you’re thinking: this ride can’t be real. It looks fantastically suicidal, like the kind of insanity dreamed up by the fictional Centrifuge Brain Project.
But Starlight is an actual working prototype being manufactured by a Swiss ride design company called ABC Rides. The firm previously made log flume rides, but I guess one day all the designers got really baked and thought, “I wonder what it would be like if we attached a Top Spin to two interlocking arms and made them all rotate at the same time.” Then they actually followed through on their stoner dreams.
The result is a ride that could beam both you and your spinning barf into space, alongside Jodie Foster.
