Tagada Rides

Postby Rough Rider » Thu Jun 08, 2006 12:26 pm

Hi guys.
Just been on a Tagada ride at my local travelling fair in good old Pembrokeshire in Wales (Not far from Megafobia at Oakwood)
IT WAS REALLY INTENSE.
The ride operator actually made a statement that there were no Tagada rides any where in the......USA
Can any of you guys confirm this statement, as I'm very curious.
Thanks
Ryan

I havent ridden any, but considering the possible dangers of riding those I wouldnt be surprised if there are none in the US.

I've heard the reason why we haven't seen many (or any) is because of insurance reasons. The fact that there isn't any restraining devices is not a help, either.

Doesn't Blackpool Pleasure Beach have an indoor Tagada?

Looking at them, from some weird reason, I faintly remember seeing one at the fair when I was really young. Main thing I remember seeing was a wobbly disc spinning about with people seated around the outter rim.

Of all the fairs I have been to, I have never seen a tagada ride.

I remember seeing a video where there were these kids sitting on the middle of it. Then they got thrown to the side. The ride slowed down and then they got back in there seats :lol: Then the ride started again.

The video was on the one Kermis Video site, cant remember what its called :?r

Yes, a horror themed one complete with dinner table. It's the climax to the Trauma Towers walkthrough attraction. It's not as wild as the travelling version but it's still a lot of fun.

Tagada's are really scary. I remember holding onto anything I could on one when I was small.
