History Of The Twist
Like many rides, the Twist originated in the good ole USA. Eli Bridge, famous for its production of ferris wheels created the first “Grasscutter twist”, similar to the modern ride but without the flooring and constructed from scratch at each event.
Edwin Hall, a renowned U.K. based manufacturer acquired the licence to produce copies of this ride and it was introduced to the domestic market around 1959.
The ride carries many names in this country, usually intended to evoke the feeling of speed, such as cyclone or sizzler. At full throttle the ride is an exhilarating speed machine, but the sophisticated hydraulic control system means that it can be slowed down a little for your younger riders to give a more sedate experience.
Its relatively speedy set up and derig make it suitable for your events on a short timescale, where you just don’t have time to wait for a dodgem or waltzer to be erected.
