We had plans to go because we go every year.


It uses gravity and force. When one side goes to one side the other goes to the other side, which creates force.

It pushes against you and gives you a thrilling feeling, making it fun. And when it goes down, it makes you feel light and loss of gravity.

Using g-force and gravity, it spins in circles and balances itself.

2. How does it start?

3. How does it stop?

4. How is it moved?

5. What spins it?


My aunt, uncle,cousins and I met at the fair in Wausaukee, WI on Saturday, August 29th. I looked forward to going because of the ride, The Skyscraper. My dad and I were the only ones who were not afraid to ride it. We thought it was amazing and had a blast!
