Waterfall Swing – World Maker Faire

How the Waterfall Swing 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.

Not just pointless but waste of water and power. Cool!

Possibly, but it could also run on circulated water and solar. I don’t know that it does…but it might.

Life would be pretty dull if there were no such fun 😁

To-night, you only need to go to the swing park on the shore front, the howling wind and rain will do the rest, although, this is dependent on the tide and height of waves crashing over the sea wall.
