The Twister Lands at Lake Winnie in 2016

A new thrill ride named the Twister will spin its way into the classic Lake Winnie amusement park in 2016.  The high intensity ride is certainly not for the faint of heart, as it will invert riders multiple times during the experience.

Provided by Moser Rides, the Twister is one of their taffy-pull-like Maverick flats.  The attraction is described by the manufacturer as utilizing a gondola that "rotates around its longitudinal axis moved by the inertial spin due to the arms asynchronous rotation."  If that description sounds a bit complicated to you, you're not alone.  Let is suffice to say that there will be plenty of crazy motions that involve a significant number of inversions for riders.

Lake Winnie has uploaded a video of the Twister in action, which really shows what the ride is capable of better than any text can.  Check it out at this link.
