Guided busways do not count, We have some here in Cambridgeshire and Manchester
Yep, I was going to say that we had one here in Cambridgeshire for a while now
Bus ways are an actual thing.....
I’ve seen this ride circulating on Twitter/Instagram recently. It puts a new meaning to the term dark ride...
Looks like it been too close to the shooting gallery

What I want to know is how long will it be before another person posts that video, I know I've posted it.
It’s like they lost the lorry which had all the theming in.
Now, put your hand up if you would ride THIS thing....
That don't look like a true gyroscope. It should have a 3rd axis. These are nothing new, they used to have gyroscopes rides similar to those in the video in Covent Garden back in the 80's/90's at a couple of quid a go. I knew the person that owed these. The ball type with the seat in made you dizzy, but the full body work out gym as shown below, was what I used to have a go on. Because of the gyro motion, you never got dizzy as each turn was different (note the 3 axis in the video) .
Quid a go on the prom one season in Blackpool.
You could go slowly just using your body weight, or get spun at about 60rpm in all three planes at once by the ride op...guess which I picked.
Couldn't walk in a straight line for about ten minutes after.
Not one for our dippy.
Used to have them at Lightwater Valley near the Pub in the Wood (great mix there), I *think* where the Trauma Tower ended up in later years. (Bottom of park map below)
We also used to have a trailer mounted one with a seat at the entertainments company I used to work for, became a game seeing how fast you could spin the various bits without breaking your arm.
Oh my god alive.
That's got "broken neck" written all over it.
Yup, even though death is pretty certain, you still want a go.
Still smoother than El Condor.
The gyroscope takes me back. Used to see one regularly round our way at fetes and car boot sales. This used to be one where the operator spun you.
This YouTube video has some very bizarre rides (with the exception of the slammer and madhouse)
On the right hand side of the thumbnail is a topple tower. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Topple_Tower
Ahhh yes, the Huss Topple Towers. Such an underwhelming ride experience.
A new ride coming to Scotland a twist on the traditional Trabant ride.
