Get ready to be mesmerized by the captivating Waterfall Swing, a marvel of engineering and creativity brought to life by the brilliant minds of Andrew Ratcliff, Mike O’Toole, Ian Charnas, and Andrew Witte, in collaboration with Dash 7 Design. This extraordinary creation combines the exhilaration of swinging with the enchantment of a cascading waterfall, resulting in a truly one-of-a-kind experience.
How does it work?
The Waterfall Swing operates through a complex system of 273 independently controlled solenoid valves positioned at the pinnacle of the structure. These valves release water in a meticulously choreographed manner, forming a magnificent curtain of water. The swingset itself is equipped with sensors that gather crucial data about the swing’s angle and speed, which is then transmitted to a computer.
Using this information, the computer predicts the movement of the rider and ingeniously creates a temporary opening in the water wall, allowing the swing to pass through unscathed. Prepare to be amazed as you witness this harmonious dance between man and water, defying the boundaries of imagination and leaving you in awe of human ingenuity.
