I shall make it my sacred quest to get as many rides as possible and determine the answer for you, Kevin.

My ass, and I, salute you.

Oh, and why are you Rolling On The Laughing Floor? ;-)

I know this is late, but I haven't been on for a while. Here is the official assertation of the spinning mechanism on Halfpipe from a SFEG Ride Operator/Trainer:

The "pods," as they have been referred to, do infact spin because of uneven distribution of weight, not tires located under the platforms. There are tires there, but they aren't big enough to really do anything. I am pretty sure they measure the speed of the "board" as it is moving through the station, as there are small sensors attached to the end of each tire. The pods do spin before and after by locking and unlocking the breaks that are located under the board, a lot like a Huss breakdance. If you look close enough, the pods are not evenly distributed where they are attached to the ride. They are offset a tiny bit to enduce the spinning motion. I hope that clears it up.

And I do like most of the rides at SFEG, but those are really high ratings. Mind Eraser is definitely better than Sidewinder, Boomerang, and Flying Toaster. Twister isn't a 10. Maybe a 7 on a good day. And Halfpipe is good, probably about a 7 or 8, depending on what floats your boat. You might want to proof-read your posts before you post them as well, justcazisaidso.
