Dippy's Milkshake Ride

This ride was one of the scenic center pieces for the Serendippo theme park. The technical design for the ride was done by Peter Malbuisson who was the technical director for the production. My role as one of the assistant technical directors was to inspect and maintain the unit during the run of the show. This telescoping lift rose out 15’ out of an 8’ trap room, the lifting action was powered by two hydraulic rams. In addition to being a telescoping lift, it contained an inverted revolve. The passenger carriage was suspended by a crane bearing and attached to a servo motor which allowed the entire top half of the unit to rotate.  Below are a few clips of the ride from the show.
