In the middle of the ride sits "The Marmaliser" contraption. Each of its five legs has a "mind manipulating" system designed to make riders smile. The arm on the left is "The Flasher" and has lights aimed at the track. The leg on the right is "The Hypnotizer" and has a number of spinning disks. The arm with the yellow drums is called "The Giggler," and it sprays trains as they zoom past. "The Inoculator" has big needles that blast riders with a joy serum. "The Tickler" arm has large rotating brushes that hang above the track. A wrap-around LED screen, which was not operating when I took this picture, displays a variety of images around the middle of this wacky contraption.
