Mobile amusement ride

Image Number 6 for United States Patent #4007926.

An amusement ride, which can be transported in a collapsed condition on the truck bed that supports the same during use; such ride employing a main drive motor, which is mounted in a gimbal fashion at the top of a vertical support column, that centrally supports and drives a great wheel that partakes in the gimbal motions of the drive motor. A gimbal drive motor is also mounted adjacent the top of the column and serves to cause a gimbal movement of the main drive motor so that axis of the great wheel describes a conical surface in space and moves between a horizontal and vertical position with the great wheel being above the top of the column in the latter position. Passenger seats are pivotally supported from the periphery of the great wheel in such a manner that they are above the great wheel when the axis of the latter is vertical.
