A very fun rotor. The padding was comfortable and the cycle was a fair length. I had an interesting and a bit thrilling sensation of slipping down slightly that I don't remember experiencing on other rides, but I think this is more likely attributable to something like my position or the weight I may have been carrying in my pockets or some other factor not related to the ride.

Fun rotor. This one really looks great, especially the sign at night. The padding was comfortable on this one and the spinning was decent with fairly good Gs. Also, the cycle was pretty good as well, though I dislike how at the end of Chance rotors I have to slide down the wall.

Ah, a good spin and puke. These rides are certainly the definition of that since what’s more puke inducing than shoving many riders into a drum and spinning them at high speeds, pinning them to the wall at the operator's mercy? Anyway, I for one have a strong stomach and enjoy these a lot, and this one isn't half bad at all despite the reviews in my opinion.

Now I just love the look of the ride. It’s appearance really just seems to fit in with this tradition park flawlessly, especially at night. A complaint though about the ride is the drum, since drums on these rotors always seem to have the wretched odor of the lunches and snacks of past riders. But I really can't blame the park specifically for that since Canobie's suffers from the same issue.

In comparison to the Turkish Twist, this one is slightly slower and less forceful. However, this one succeeds in the one area that Canobie’s fails, ride length. While Canobie’s ends in about 30 seconds, Lake Compounce runs theirs about 4 times longer allowing for a very satisfying and dizzying ride experience. I especially love how the floor is dropped for most of the ride since it’s really cool having nothing between me and the floor.

Another complaint though about the ride is the ending. Instead of the floor raising all the way back up like Canobie’s, the floor only rises about halfway up before the ride stops, leading to riders sliding down the wall a foot or two. Thankfully I wasn’t hurt, but I definitely see the potential for injury. Is this the only one that ends like this? Hopefully it is.

Despite it’s age, the Rotor still gives a good ride and is one of the better flats at Lake Compounce. Between this one and Canobie’s (the only other rotor I’ve been on), this one pales in my opinion because of its lack of intensity when compared to the Turkish Twist. This is certainly a cool flat that has become a rarity nowadays and is worth checking out if you have a love of spinning rides.

This is the best rotor that I have been on. It gets spinning alot faster than the one at Canobie, and the floor drops alot longer too. You DO stick to the wall. No one fell to the floor.

This Rotor is a decent ride. It looks good from a distance, the location is good, the floor drops a long way, and it works (you do stick to the wall). The critics of this ride havent been on a truly bad Rotor, like the former Taz Twister at SF Great Adventure, where the floor drops 4 inches instead of two feet, or the now defunct model in the Lost Continent at Kings Dominion where the cave temperature rarely dipped below 90 degrees.

This ride gave me claustrophobia and nausea at the same time. I wasnt sticking to the wall, but Ill bet my vomit wouldve (I didnt puke, but I was VERY close). This ride is badbadbadbad news, and is quite possibly the worst ride Ive had the misfortune to experience in my entire life. You can do much better than this, LC!

This is the worst Rotor I have ever been on and I think this is the first ride I have rated with a one. It runs too slow. I have never slid to the ground on a rotor until now. I now have rug burns on my elbows from sliding down the wall. Why even drop the floor if everyone is going to slide down the wall.

Edited on 11/15/04 to state that the rug burns healed after two weeks

With all do respect for those who enjoy these rotor things.....

I was "dragged" aboard some years ago. While I will ride any roller coaster multiple times, I do not do well on rides that spin. This contraption was no exception. Rule of thumb: DO NOT DRINK GRAPE SODA AND EAT LAKE COMPOUNCES CORN DOGS BEFORE RIDING. After I finished my five minute inimate hugging of the garbage can following my scramble to get off the Rotor ride, I decided that the ride would be a perfect method for making leaders of rouge nations give up military secrets. But again, this is just my opinion.
