Description:
AMUSEMENT RIDE WITH CONTROLLABLE HELICAL MOTION OF AN ECCENTRIC RIDER AROUND THE CENTRAL AXIS OF THE ROUTE OF THE RIDER

1. FIELD OF THE INVENTION:

The invention relates to the field of amusement rides. More particularly, the invention to be used to enable at least one rider to change and control his position around a cylinder while enables said at least one rider to change and control a speed along a central axis of the cylinder. Said at least one rider travels along a helical route around the central axis of the cylinder while controls a pitch, and a direction of the helical route.

2. BACKGROUND

Roller coasters have long been some of the well liked riders in amusement parks. Rider load and unload at a platform, typically at the low elevation. At the beginning of each ride cycle, a roller coaster vehicle is locked to be safe to upload riders. Vehicle is then released to gain kinetic energy from potential energy, if it is at the highest point of the track, or from electrical motor installed on the vehicle or track. The roller coaster track typically includes various loops, turns, inversions and other configuration intended to thrill the rider. A number of amusement rides have been devised in which riders can apparently race each other in a simulated dragster format.

Traditional roller coasters travel along rail tracks and provide their riders with stationary seat which fix the motion of the riders to the direction of the travel of vehicle.

The overall effect attained by traditional roller coasters is to statically couple riders to the vehicle and therefore sense essentially the same motions in forces experienced by the vehicles in which they ride. This problem is experienced by most amusement rides, which due to static nature of the ride provides the same ride sensation and experience every time it is ridden.

Nowadays amusement rides have evolved from simple equipment to advanced and technically sophisticated equipment with special mechanisms and various movements. Thanks to virtual reality and by using new technology, new designs and software, riders experience more joy and excitement of amusement rides.
