New Octotron at Belmont Park is Famous

MSNBC recently highlighted 11 new rides for thrill seekers. The Octotron in Mission Bay’s Belmont Park made the list! Here is what MSNBC had to say:

As the newest addition to San Diego’s beachfront amusement park, this ride never leaves the ground yet still manages to provide a good gut-churning experience. Like the mutant love child of a Tilt-A-Whirl and a tea-cup ride, it features individual cars that circle around a ground-hugging undulating track. However, instead of spinning in flat circles, each two-person car spins forward and backwards with riders controlling just how much head-over-heels (or heels-over-head) motion they can stand. “We must’ve spun upside down like 50 times,” said Robb Alvey, owner/creator of “I’ve never felt so sick in my life.”

It is time to visit Belmont Park again and enjoy the ride! I will however wait until after the ride for some food.
