The Claw Overview

Gyro Swing type ride.

Guests sit in an outward facing ring of seats suspended from a pendulum. The pendulum swings to an angle of 120 degrees whilst the ring of seats rotates.

The height is the maximum height of the spinning gondola. As it swings to 120º, the gondola's maximum height is actually more than the supporting structure's, which is approximately 16m tall.

Constructed by Ride Trade, a division of Intamin, based in Liechtenstein.
