Main Document

Synkope amusement park ride 

written by Francisco Esquembre, Desiré Medina, Isabel Muñoz, Cristina López, and Catiana Meca

This EjsS Javascript 3D model simulates a ride in a Synkope attraction, located at Terra Mitica, Benidorm, Spain.

People seat on the base cylinder, which is then balanced (pretty high!) while it rotates around its axis.

The ride accelerates for some seconds, then stays at maximum balance, and finally slows down until stopping.

Click on the "Throw objects" button to simulate the fall of objects released (or lost) from riders. This helps you figure out a reasonable safety perimeter.
