The Waterfall Swing
We reckon this would keep the kids entertained while on their holidays! Although it may be a bit cold for it at the moment.
This is the Waterfall Swing in New York.
It looks so cool!
This is how it works:
Water recirculates through 273 independently controlled solenoid valves at the top of the structure to create a wall of water.
This water starts from a collection pool on the ground and is pumped up to a large pipe that feeds the solenoids.
Sensors mounted on the swingset gather information about the angle and speed of each swing.
That information is sent to a computer that predicts the action of the rider.
The computer then creates a hole in the wall of water, allowing the rider to swing through without getting wet.
It all sounds a bit complicated to us, but we love it!
