Stay Away From the Uthiru Swing Ride

As I walked into work today I passed this monstrous metal contraption in the Uthiru roundabout. I’ve ridden (and enjoyed) swing rides before, but I think I’ll pass on this one!

It’s closed today, but I’m sure it’ll be packed this weekend. It’s all fun and games until someone gets hurt… that thing looks super shady.

    OMG! that ‘contraption’ is on the web? I studied it upclose when i was doing my morning jog and i guess it would work in a controlled environment (not an open park). Its actually dangerous for people who are on the ground. But its manually spun/span, hence environmentally friendly!

      Yes, it’s on the web! Nothing escapes the watchful eye of Alan! Hahaha, actually I just work at ILRI, so I see it every day ;)
