BROOKLYN, N.Y. Quassy Amusement & Waterpark’s newest thrill ride, Reverse Time, is put through the paces recently during testing at the SBF/VISA Group manufacturing facility in Casale di Scodosia, Italy.
The Middlebury, Conn., amusement park will take delivery of the family thrill ride this winter and have it installed in time for Quassy’s April opening. This will be the first Reverse Time unit in all of North America. SBF/VISA Group is represented in the United States and Canada by Rides 4U, Somerville, N.J
Reverse Time, themed as a giant clock, accommodates 24 riders seated in a circular configuration, facing outward. As the ride starts to spin it is lifted into the air with the supporting turntable rotating in the opposite direction. Guests will dip and dive as the ride reaches a maximum speed of 20 revolutions per minute. Mid-cycle, the ride will change direction adding to the exciting experience. The family-owned property will introduce Reverse Time, a thrill ride from Italian manufacturer SBF/VISA Group, when the park opens for its 108th season in April.
