Not amused?
Meet Thomas P. Casey, inventor. He will demonstrate his idea for a rather extreme ferris wheel called "Rings of Saturn". I shot and edited this short demo video for him.

I saw this on Neatorama earlier today, and while I'm not convinced the ride is entirely practical it certainly looks fun. Exactly the kind of vomitfest I'd be likely to pay money to sit on.

It would take significant more engineering, but I'd like to see a version where the rings also rotate (maybe the outer could rotate clockwise and the inner could go counterclockwise) while they swivel.

The rings do rotate as they revolve. The outer one goes counter clockwise and the inner one goes clockwise. If you look closely you'll see a gap between the seats on the backside of the outer ring. That gap makes one full rotation every twelve revolutions.
