For adrenaline-junkies, today’s invention is a mini theme park ride in the garden.
A swing would be embedded firmly in the ground. The chains or ropes would be replaced by solid shafts and the seat equipped with a serious funfair-padded harness.
The swing would be powered so that its occupant could be swung over the 12 o’clock position.
It would also be possible to program the rotation so that changes in direction and speed might occur at random…thus adding to the ‘thrill.’
