EVolution at SFGAdv.

I know it's not a coaster, but I didn't know how else to figure this out:

What exactly is Evolution? I know it's a Huss flat ride, but what does it do?

Its manufactured by Far Fabbri of Italy.

Picture 10 4-person tubs on a Chance Choas in the flat loading position, and suspend it in the center axel from a 70 foot pole. Attatch the pole to an A shaped framework like a Pirate Ship ride, but keep the pole centered so it has a counter balance.

Now, turn the pole in a ferris wheel format and spin the choas attached to it.

its like spinning a plate on the tip of your finger while doing cart wheels...

I think Evolution is a great ride. I only got to ride it once. The rest of the time I have been there it's been shut down. Good luck trying to get on!

THANK YOU R'swmn! I've been wondering for ages what the heck that ride looked like. One question though, in that pic are they spinning UPSIDE-DOWN?!?!

P.S. What time are you all going to me @ SFA on Sat? I might drop in for a few hours to say hi...

Actually No,when the ride gets to that position the spin cycle slows down and, The cars end up sitting you uprite at a slight slant but,when it starts to spin fast again the cars swing out again so your belly and face are facing the ground so,you pretty much go upside down when the ride is sideways coming down or,going up but,other times your slanted upright or belly down.Sorry if that confused you any.

P.S. What time are you all going to me @ SFA on Sat? I might drop in for a few hours to say hi...

We plan on being there when the park opens.Of the two park trips we plan to spend the most time here so,we will probably leave around 7PM maybe later depending on how long the drive is.I will e-mail a pic of myself and my husband on Friday so you know who to look for in case you go.I am so anxious to ride Batwing and S:ROS it's crazy!
