Human-Powered Ferris Wheel

[YouTube - Link]

No motor? No problem! In India, this ferris wheel is powered by men climbing up and using their body weight to rotate the wheel.

I guess you'd want to try this ride early, since the operators must be exhausted at the end of the day!

It reminds me of the merry go rounds when I was a kid. The older boys would get in the middle and spin so fast that kids would be flying off the outside.

If you tried to do this now days, the government would put a stop to it; someone could get hurt. Enforced mediocrity.
