Belmont Park Opens Octotron

There's a new way to get dizzy at California's famous Belmont Park, and it's name is Octotron.  The park opened their latest thrill ride today, which is a Change Morgan Unicoaster, and only the second of its kind in the world.

The local news visited the park and filed a video that shows off just how wild a spin on the Octotron is.  I can't decide if it looks too intense for my liking, or if the ability of the rider to control the flipping motion would be its saving grace for me.  Perhaps if it became too much you could just take a leisurely spin - right-side up that is.

Either way it looks like a blast and I hope a park closer to me picks on up soon.
