Disk-O


Disk-O

Disk-O/ Skater is a Zamperla flat ride. Riders sit on a circular platform with outward-facing seats (Disk-O) [or in a long, normal gondola looking inwards (Skater)] , and rock back and forth while spinning. It is a larger version of a Rockin' Tug, also manufactured by Zamperla. There are both trailer-mounted and park models available, as well as a larger "Disk-O Coaster," which is a similar ride, but there is a hill in the center of the ride in which the circular platform goes over.
