Kick-Flip is a medium sized thrill ride. It can carry a fair amount of passengers and has good excitement and fear rates, but is offset by a relatively high nausea rate. Kick-Flip has twelve cars, each holding two people. The cars are twisted, turned and flipped around on the ride's massive arm.
Kick-Flip is inspired by Zipper rides that were developed in the late 1960s and early 70s in the United States as a more exciting version of a Ferris wheel. They became popular across America, Canada, Australia and New Zealand, however the older models gained notoriety for being dangerous due to its rough riding and even fatalities. These were countered with enhanced locking and safety measures and the ride type today has a strong fan following.
