Except the one in the fair spins faster. You're pinned against the wall.

I love how this video demonstrates why you can't just toss something into the sun thanks to the corriolis effect.

I used to be able to ride that thing (The Gravitron) but eventually it started making me nauseous as hell. I would flip around and stay upside-down on that ride. LOL

Im strange - but you all know this . I was able to handle the Gravitron at are local amusement park . the whip we think it was called. were you sit in a tea cup looking ride. that you sat in and it spin around and rotate out and back and had a disk you grab to make it spin. that ride would make me loose my cookies every time we road it. roller coasters for the most part are no problem . only roller coaster ride we had a hard time on was . one at circus circus years ago . it was a virtual roller coaster at circus circus. you and one other person would get into what looked like a big egg. the thing would move and blow air as you sat in it . you see a movie in 3D like a real ride . the ride lasted over 5 mins and was I glad it was over when it ended . one more min in that ride it would not of been good .
