Horizontal Ferris Wheel

Postby tubahurl » Mon Dec 15, 2008 8:51 pm

Couldn't resist a reply.

In case all who were "there" last year didn't make it out to the "Burbs", the folks at DEVIANTEV.com brought out the Tilt-A-Hurl and Tub-A-Hurl for everyone's inner ear excitement. :shock: We do have plans for another ride(still under super secret design phase) for '09. :D The super crappy Playa conditions unfortunately kept us over in the Burbs most of the week.

Everyone now! Let us all think of a wet winter for the Playa. OOOOGA BOOOGA CHOOOGA WOOOGA RAIN RAIN RAIN!

'09 should find us on the other side, closer to the action. So look for us, or just listen for the..................................... screams! :twisted:

Now under one roof:

A plan is what you vary from.

Some of the old folk traditions in Great Britain featured a great burning wheel that was rolled downhill in the middle of winter.

It was also a Nordic tradition, celebrating the solstice and the suns movement across the sky........

The new site is evolving:
http://www.deviantev.com/tubahurl/
The new site does require bandwidth for the tunes, works fine without waiting for the tunes though. Pic's are few due to the playa killing my camera the first day. I'm scavanging links across the web to other peoples sites. The Pic's page should be done in a week. The Home Page does have some links to the Berkeley event done shortly after BM-08.
Enjoy

Not at night. The playa is not equiped for that. Unless you want to do a flyover from Winnemuca or Reno.

Basically all flying is from dawn to 10 am, or maybe a little later.

People-powered - make it a hamster wheel!

Postby DancesWithElves » Wed Jan 14, 2009 2:47 pm

We used to roam the playa with the R'Evolve - big rotating people-powered swings. Sure wish we'd thought of the insane caliope music! *sigh* Ah well, my real point is that people-powered makes your ferris wheel much more interactive. So while we're dreaming and brain-farting around... why not make it powered via a hamster-dance? :wink: Then it can roll around on its own, unthered to a camp (and rolling over others in its path... queue the caliope music!)

Big-ass ferris wheel? Think about the wind...

Postby grogling » Tue Jan 27, 2009 9:15 pm

Keep in mind kids... If you can't anchor the thing down securely enough to handle a full-load of people AND winds in excess of 100mph, I wouldn't even consider bringing one out. Forget about if it's been done before. Our comm tower is rated to handle 100+mph winds and we still lower it considerably every time the wind kicks up for safety.

If the wheel was set up anywhere inside of the city-area where folks are camping and it managed to tip over due to a wind-storm the results would be catastrophic.

Otherwise, game-on if you can put this together the right way.

And if you see a Ferris wheel that looks like it's about to tip over, don't get on board. :)
