How does a carousel ride work?
Regarding how the fair carousel works, first of all, you should know that the work type of the carousel ride can be divided into three types: top drive, imitation top drive, and bottom drive. Different types of carnival carousels have different working principles. Among them, the carousel with the top drive is more and more popular. Many customers who come to our factory always ask what is the difference between the top drive and the bottom drive carousel, why are the prices so different? In fact, it is mainly the difference in structure, maintenance, and track.
1. What is the top drive carousel ride?
As the name implies, the top drive fair carousel, gliding device, and gearbox are all located on top of the carousel ride. The most prominent feature of the top drive carnival carousel is that the turntable is relatively low, so during the operation of the carousel ride, the entire device is more stable and stable. Large luxury carousels will give priority to using top drives, for example, the double-decker carousel is using this type of drive.
Another outstanding advantage of this type of merry go round is its long life span, which can be as long as eight to ten years. Moreover, there are many types of carousel rides with top drive, and the chassis is extremely uniform and narrow. However, since this amusement park carousel has higher technical requirements, a more complicated structure, and higher quality requirements for glass fiber reinforced plastics, the price is relatively high.
2. What is the bottom drive carousel ride?
In contrast, the transmission device for the bottom carousel ride is located at the bottom of the merry go round. Although there is not much difference in appearance, it is very different in production technology. The fair carousel with bottom drive has a very prominent advantage, that is, it is very easy to disassemble and transport. Most people can quickly learn how to install and disassemble.
