The terrifying theme park ride everybody keeps sharing online is actually fake

A viral clip of a terrifying theme park ride that is being shared on social media is actually fake.

A video showing the ride known as the Gyro Drop, in South Korea, shows the tower of the ride doubling in size, and then ejecting its passengers, who remain connected to the ride with some sort of cord.

Once they’re all left dangling, the spinning occurs.

However, it turns out the film is a fake, which greatly embellishes the capabilities of the ride.

In reality, the tower takes riders to the top of the 230-foot tower aboard a gondola that rotates.


Once at the top, the gondola drops down at a speed of 62 mph.

The most intense part of the ride is most likely the VR goggles that may give the rider an illusion of dropping somewhere else, but no one is swinging around the tower, and it never changes in size.

While going on holiday to Seoul may still be a great idea, visiting a fake ride should not be on your list of things to do.
