Thrilll Rides flip you, spin you, twirl you, drop you and toss you. Some spin to the point where you can hardly stand. Others flip you upside down over and over and over again. And a few drop, leaving you with nothing but butterflies in your stomach.
Whatever the kind, Thrill Rides are a staple at amusement and theme parks worldwide. They're also an icon of nearly every fair and carnival.
If you're into thrills, then these amusement rides do just that, rightfully earning them the name – Thrill Rides.
For a thrill-seeker an amusement park visit or a trip to the fair is not complete without at least one thrilling ride.
