The Amusing Ads Archive - Chance Rides 1996

This week's ad makes a great follow up to Scott & Carol's look at the debut of the Chaos flat ride, back around 1996. As we gather from the ad, Chance Rides had huge plans for their new Chaos attraction, calling it a "wide open adrenaline rush that attracts thrill seekers in droves!"

Those huge plans did work out for a while, when these rides were showing up at many carnivals, and both large and small amusement parks across the globe. Eventually the problems the rides had outweighed their draw, and most of them have since been removed.

I did happen to ride a couple of these back when my stomach could handle such things, and they were a pretty wild experience if you got the right weight distribution.
