Instead of the regular seasonal conditions, this May happened to welcome sunny, blue skies and breezy temperatures - a welcome change from the sweltering scene I witnessed several years back.
The contraption involved two gigantic axe-like configurations that swung back and forth, before making two to three complete revolutions. We happened to be situated towards the middle of the sets of seats, as opposed to the outward-facing edge that I had preferred. The ride proceeded in an unhurried manner, providing a decent view of the surrounding scenery and shrubbery. Speaking on my own behalf, it was a walk in the park; but the ride clearly wasn't for the faint of the heart for those vulnerable to motion sickness.
The ride was clunky and shaky, with no cushioning behind the head. Feet were left to dangle as the cart progressed along gradual curves, jerking each step of the way. Put simply, it was significantly less enjoyable than The Fly and also resulted in minor headaches.
