The base frame may, to advantage, be a trailer type vehicle.
Amusement rides are well known and take many forms and it is characteristic that such devices must be, in most cases, readily collapsible for being transported from one location to another.
The present invention is concerned with an amusement ride of the general nature referred to of a novel type and mounted on a base frame, which may be a trailer vehicle, and adapted for being collapsed directly on the base frame so that it can quickly be prepared for transport and can quickly be set up in a new location;
A particular object of the invention is the provision of an improved collapsible amusement ride of a novel nature which is mounted on a readily portable base frame.
Another object of the present invention is the provision of an amusement ride which is relatively inexpensive to construct.
A still further object of the invention is the provision of an amusement ride which creates novel effects.
Still another object of the present invention is the provision of an amusement ride which does not employ seats or other devices of that nature for the riders thereby making the device relatively inexpensive to construct.
These and other objects and advantages of the present invention will become more apparent upon reference to the followingdetailed specification taken in connection with the accompanying drawings in which:
FIG. I is a side elevational view of an amusement ride according to the present invention.
FIG. 2 is a plan view of the ride.
FIG. 3 is a side view drawn at enlarged scale showing about half of a passenger compartment from the side thereof.
FIG. 4 is a plan sectional view, partly broken away, and is indicated by line IV-IV on FIG. 3.

FIG. 6 is a side view of a modification utilizing barrellike passenger cabs.
FIG. 7 is a plan view indicated by line VIl--VII on FIG. 6.
BRIEF SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION An amusement ride according to the present invention utilizes a base frame, which may be a trailer vehicle bed, on which a rotary structure is mounted on an axis of rotation which is inclined to the vertical. The rotating structure comprises two passenger compartments which are also rotatable on the rotating structure on axes located on opposite sides of the axis of rotation of the structure and inclined thereto so as to converge in the upward direction.
In one form of the invention, the compartments are closed cabs and in another form, each passenger compartment is in the form of a platform and is provided with a surrounding railing structure with an entrance gate so that passengers can enter and leave the respective compartment and can stand therein while the ride is in operation and during which the support structure rotates while the compartments rotate on the support structure.
The base frame, especially when it is in the form of a trailer, is provided with ground engaging bracing elements for substantially rigid support of the base frame when the ride is set up. The support structure is adapted for being locked in place on the base frame and partially collapsed thereon to provide for minimum heighth of the assembly during transport while, furthermore, the passenger compartments are partially collapsible to decrease the width and heighth of the assembly during transport.
DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE INVENTION Referring to the drawings somewhat more in detail, the ride according to the present invention is seen in side elevation in FIG. 1, with the rotatable structure, in the form of an elongated arm, in position for operation of the amusement ride. The assembly according to the present invention comprises a trailer vehicle having a frame 10 which is more or less conventional in general configuration and at the rear end has supporting ground wheels 12 and at the front end is adapted for connection to a towing vehicle, such as a tractor, in a more or less conventional manner.
Adjacent the rear end of frame 10 of the vehicle are ground engaging pads 14 and, similarly, other ground engaging pads 16 are provided on the frame of the trailer near the front end.
The frame of the trailer also has pivoted thereto in about the middle elongated arms 18 adapted at the free outer ends, 20, to receive ground engaging pad structures. When the trailer is located in the desired site, pads 14 and 116 are lowered, and arms 18 are swung outwardly so as to extend substantially at right angles to the trailer and pads adjustably mounted thereon at 20 are adjusted into load bearing engagement with the surface on which the trailer rests.
According to the present invention, the trailer in about the middle of the length, and also centrally located transversely of the trailer, is provided with a bearing structure 22 supporting a shaft 24 on which is mounted a rotatable structure, or support arm, generally indicated at 26. The rotatable structure comprises a central portion 28 from which is dependant a drive ring 30 engaged by a drive roller 32 that is powered in any suitable manner, as by an electric motor schematically indicated at 34.
It will be noted that the axis of shaft 24 is inclined to the vertical in the fore and aft direction of the trailer so that central portion 28 of the rotary structure is also inclined in conformity with the inclination of the shaft. Extending from one side of central portion 28 is an arm portion 36 of the rotating structure fixedly secured to portion 28 and at such an angle as to be substantially parallel to the trailer frame when the rotary structure is in the position shown in FIG. 1.
At the opposite side of portion 28 is a further arm portion 33 of the rotary structure which is hingedly connected to portion 28 by hinge means 40 and is adapted for being fixed in the position illustrated by removeable pin means 42. By removing removeable pin means 42, when the rotary structure is in the position illustrated in FIG. 1, arm portion 3% can be lowered to its dot-dash position and in which position it can be introduced between and pinned to upright members 44 fixed to the trailer and also forming a support for a rack 46 adapted for receiving a demountable fence structure by means of which the assembly according to the present invention can be surrounded when it is set up for use.
Positioned beneath arm portion 38 on the trailer is a jack arrangement 48, hydraulic, for example, which can be adjusted into engagement with the underside of arm portion 38 when the latter is in transport position. Jack 48, together with pin means inserted through the apertures 50 and 52 provided in uprights 44 and arm portion 38, respectively, fixedly secure arm portion 38 to the trailer vehicle for transport.
Similarly, a latch lever arrangement 54 is provided on the trailer frame near the outer free end of arm portion 36 and can be pinned thereto by availing of holes 56 for fixedly securing the rotary structure to the frame on the trailer during transport.
Arm portions 36 and 38 are inclined relative to center arm portion 28 and each carries a bearing structure 58, 60, near the outer free end with each bearing structure supporting a respective shaft 62, 64. The shafts 62 and 64 are so arranged that their axes converge in the upward direction at an angle somewhat smaller than 45 included angle, although the specific amount of the convergence of the axes of shafts 62 and 64 can be varied.
Supported on each of shafts 62 and 64 is a passenger compartment 66 and 68, respectively, and which can be identical. Each passenger compartment has dependent from the underside thereof and concentric with the axis of the respective shaft, a drive ring 70 engaged by a respective drive roller 72 driven in rotation in any suitable manner as by an electric motor 74.
At this point, it will be apparent that by driving support structure, or support arm, 26 in rotation while simultaneously driving the passenger compartments 66 and 68 in rotation, a novel motion pattern will be imparted to the passenger compartments.
Each passenger compartment comprises, in general, a floor portion 76, an enclosing wall 78 upstanding from the floor portion, a gated entrace opening 80, and a central diametrially extending elevated rail arrangement 82,0n which is mounted a plurality of lights.
A particular feature of the present invention is in the construction of the passenger compartments which are so arranged as to be extremely strong and, therefore, safe, but which can readily be collapsed to reduce the heighth thereof during transport and likewise being collapsible in the lateral direction so that, during transport, the passenger compartment assemblies do not project laterally from the trailer vehicle which could result in damage to the said compartments.
Each passenger compartment is made up of a floor portion comprising a plurality ofl beams 90 in spaced parallel relation extending the long direction of the passenger compartment. The l beams are cut off to form rounded ends for the compartment and the ends are fixed together by angles 92 welded thereto. inwardly from the arcuate ends of the compartment floor are other arcuate angles 94 fixed to I beams 90 so as to have one leg upstanding.
The enclosing wall for the compartment comprises a curved portion 96 at each end fixed at the bottom to the upstanding leg of the respective angle 94 and inclining outwardly therefrom in the upward direction and braced by vertical braces 98 near the extremity of the compartment floor. The entire enclosing wall of the compartment is made up of hollow rail members, square, for example, and expanded metal extending between the rail members.
At each end of each curved portion 96, there is a short wall section 100 connected to the adjacent end of portion 96 by a hinge 102 so as to be foldable inwardly toward the longitudinal center of the compartment. Each section 100 has a brace 104 detachable at at least the lower end from the compartment floor to support the respective section in folded out position.
At the nongated side of the compartment, the wall comprises a vertical section 106 fixed to the straight side of the compartment floor. On the side of the compartment having the gate, indicated at 108, the wall comprises a pair of short wall sections 110 fixed to the adjacent straight side of the compartment floor and disposed on opposite sides of the entrance opening 80. Gate 108 is hinged by hinge 114 to the end of one of sections 110 and a pair of wing sections 116 are hinged to the opposed edges of wall sections 110 and are provided with detachable braces 118 which hold the wings in outwardly extending position but which can be disconnected to permit the wings to fold back flat against wall sections 110.
To each outer end of each wall section 110, and also at the opposite ends of wall section 106, there is hinged, by hinge 120, a further wall section 122 which fits against the adjacent side of the adjacent wall section 100, and is detachably connected thereto as by apertured lugs and pins, indicated at 124. The wall sections 122, when disconnected from wall section 100, can be swung inwardly toward the center of the compartment.
The above described hinged wall sections and the hinged wings permit the compartment to be collapsed so as to be entirely within the width of the trailer when the rotary structure is in transport position. Latch means, not shown, can be provided to lock each compartment against rotation during transport.
Each of the aforementioned drive rings may be made up of angularly arranged channel members which support a ring shaped channel member which is faced with a flat plate.
Each compartment has a floor plate 126 which extends between the curved angles 94 and the straight side edges of the respective compartment.
In an elevated position above the floor of each compartment, say, at 7 feet, there is a generally rectangular structure comprising an outer frame-like rail 128 which is supported on curved wall portion 96 by support arms 130 pivoted to both rail 128 and the wall portion. A brace arm 132 detachably connected between rail 128 and each arm 130 holds the rail in elevated position but, when removed, permits the rail to be lowered into the compartment.
Pivoted on top. of the ends of rail 128, at 134, are arms 136. A ring 138 between the arms 136 holds them in elevated position but is removeable to permit the arms to pivot downwardly inside the rail. The framelike rail 128 and the arms 136 are availed of for supporting lights. Since the passengers stand in the compartments, rails 128 can also serve as a hand grip, if so desired.
In transport condition, the walls of the compartments are collapsed as explained above while arms 136 are pivoted downwardly inside the supporting rail and the rail is moved downwardly inside the wall of the respective compartment. The compartments are, thus, collapsed in both lateral and vertical direction so the assembly will present the smallest dimensions for transport. 1
FIGS. 6 and 7 present a variation of the ride arrangement in somewhat schematic form. In FIG. 6 the mobile base frame of the vehicle bears reference numeral 150 and mounted thereon is a bearing support 152 inclined at an angle of 45. Rotatable on the bearing support is a support member 154 driven in rotation as by drive pulley 156.
Extending from support member 154 at angles of 45 to the plane thereof are support arms 158 and 160 and upon each of which there is rotatably supported a cab support 162. Each cab support has passenger cabs 164 on the ends thereof for receiving passengers.
Arm 158 is advantageously hinged at 166 to the rotatable support member 154 so as to be foldable downwardly on top of support arm 160 for transport.
Each of the cab supporting'arrangements 162 is preferably rotatable on its respective supporting arm and isdriven in rotation by respective motorized pulley 168.
As will be seen in FIG. 7, each cab supporting structure 162 may consist of a relative open frame work with two of the said passenger compartments 164 arranged in end to end relation on each side of the center of rotation.
Modifications may be made within the scope of the appended claims.
