Waltzer • The Waltzer is a fair ground ride that consists a number of cars which are free to spin individually as the ride its self spins. The floor of the ride has got bumps on it so as the cars spin they will smoothly go up and down constantly. Some times the operator of the ride spins the cars by hand.

Big Wheel • The Big Wheel, as a ride type, has been a part of the fairground for as long as the fairground has existed. The person who invented the big wheel is George Washington. The idea of using a giant spiked device to propel passengers gently through a circle is an obvious attraction for the fairground engineer.
