  1. Whoa… I’d love to ride one of those. How high up does it bounce?

  2. The ones I rode in the ’70s all went past 90 degrees. If the ride operator was in a really festive mood he’s run the seats up/down so fast that you could actually feel the seats hitting the limiter. It was awesome!!! I wish more of these were still around.

  3. Does Anybody know where one of these are???? I admire the design of the old Saturn 6 rather than the hurricane.

  4. Coney Island had one running in ’08. Not sure if it was still there this summer.

  5. La diferencia más importante entre Saturno y Hurricane es que, Saturno mantienen los carros en el mimo nivel respecto al brazo, mientras que el Hurricane el carro se mantiene a 10 grados de inclinación respecto al piso. Esto por la añadidura de cables y un brazo adicional que sostiene al carro, conectado al extremo del brazo principal. Esto da una sensación mucho más intensa a los pasajeros en las elevaciones y descensos.
