Flat Rides in Amusement Parks

Flat Rides make up the majority of the rides and attractions at amusement parks, carnivals and fairs. So, you might be asking yourself what exactly a flat ride is?

If you’ve spent anytime in a theme park or amusement park, then I can guarantee that you’ve ridden at least one flat ride.

I’ve started a series of YouTube videos called Park-O-Pedia that look at theme park and amusement park terms and history. Check out my latest video all about flat rides in amusement parks to learn about the first new and how they changed over the years.

My favorite flat rides are the Monster at Kings Island, the Flying Dutchman at Kentucky Kingdom and any scrambler! Seriously, I love scramblers but not as much as I love roller coasters.
