Why not a 4-armed topspin?

Think about it. This could be very possible and the capacity would be out of this world. It could load just like a ferris wheel, and could come in different sizes. What do ya'll think?

It's an interesting idea, but I don't really think it's necessary. Even on busy days at parks, I can't recall the last time i saw a top spin full. I don't even ride the Twister at SFNE anymore, because although I think the ride's fun, there's never enough people on it to make it flip all the way.

Or maybe not load like a ferris wheel but have the loading platform high enough so that when the arms are parallel to the ground. Thats were the loading is. Get my drift? I've also thought of this. It's a good idea and Idon't know why Huss hasn't tried it yet.

You mean something like the Mondial Splashover at Canada's Wonderland?

The trouble with that configuration is that it doesn't seem to be capable of some of the accelerations that the Huss Top Spin can produce. The ride seems to spend most of its time pitching forward and backward and not actually flipping over...
