RipTide is a HUSS Top Spin ride that was installed at Valleyfair in 2005. Riders are seated in two rows on a platform suspended between two counterweighted arms, which are turned by motors to create a circular motion. The platform spins independently on several occasions, with brakes being applied at key moments to leave guests staring at the ground below or the sky above.
