it looks that way from the picture.
is the only way to spin if the Ride-Op spins you?
Yes the only way to spin the cups is for the ride op to do it. Either that or they just spin a bit naturally as the ride moves but nothing intense unless spun by the operator.

I felt right at home surprisingly enough

This place has changed a quite a bit as in the flume and kids rides,but glad to see the crooked house alive and well! The Romney,Hythe and Dymchurch Railway is amazing! I was lucky enough to be the fireman on one of the engines as a teenager as my Grandad used to work at the ticket office in Dymchurch.I also believe it used to be used to take local children to school instead of the school bus,i don't know if this is longer the case! But it would have been a cool way to get to school! This report brought back many happy childhood memories, Thanks for sharing.
Im glad you enjoyed the report. Its really funny because I live literally 15/20 min drive away from the place yet I very rarely take a trip down there. I remember as a child my parents would take me to Dymchurch and Folkestone quite often to go to the beach and on the rides but then once Rotunda in Folkestone closed down we sort of just stopped going.
The railway is amazing and the trains look fantastic! They are so well maintained they looked brand new! Im not to sure about the getting kids to school thing but I will try and find out for you and let you know. You are right though it would be a great way to get to school!
