A carnival-style ride. Still wondering why its in Gotham.
7= great ride even though it doesnt belong in a park like Magic Mountain. This was a weird feeling because it was the first ride i rode that gave the type of force this ride does.

The Grinder Gearworks is a typical carnival Round-Up flat ride. You stand up and spin until you are plastered against the wall, and then the whole contraption tilts up at about a 45-degree angle, and there are no restraints because you are held by the centrifugal forces. The spinning while level is actually more intense than the spinning while elevated, which is more pleasant. I think I give the edge to Spin Out for sheer fun, but this is a pretty entertaining diversion from all the big stuff at Magic Mountain. However, the big stuff will probably take all day, so dont make this one a priority.

I actually liked it. Of course, Ive never been on one of this type before, but I really enjoyed it. I think with a little added theming, then maybe...just maybe, I might actually visit once every trip.

This is a spinner thats nuts. It spins then a lever takes up the entire circular motor and seats up to various angles. Fast spinning too, not just a slow motion.
