Simulator Ride


I apologize for the fact that a number of my friends are having trouble accessing L & L Photography II. I've been working with it for several hours and things just seem to be getting worse. Not a good sign. I sent off an email to Weebly's customer service department and they responded within minutes. Weebly is being hit by a "massive Denial of Service attack." This has happened before but it hasn't been this large and they've been able to deal with it quickly. They assured me that the problem would be solved "within the hour."

We'll see. Another problem will be if my site is still functioning when the attack is halted.

Meanwhile, back at the ranch, I've posted a couple of photos taken last week at our local shopping mall. I'd not seen one of these before, but it's called a Simulator Ride. It goes up and down and sideways and twists and turns. There are several different simulations. You can try one for $4.00.

The Simulator Ride is owned and operated by Roger and Linda Rosenbaugh (Roger is shown in the 2nd photo) of Farmington, New Mexico. He says business is pretty good and by and large people enjoy his Simulator Ride.

This looks similar to the thing pilots use to train on. Maybe its the same technology going off in another direction.

That looks fun! Hope your site problems get better. I had no problem.

The link just worked for me!
I would get motion sick on this thing for sure.

I might enjoy it though generally I prefer the real things!

This sure looks unique and exciting ride.

Looks like fun, perhaps you should give it a go and post some internal shots too?!

How colorful!

I've only tried a simulator ride once and enjoyed it, surprising myself.

I don't like simulator rides because I don't want to challenge my stomach any more.

Jim Klenke said...

I would do it, $4 seems pretty cheap.

I like these simulators. Hope you get the kinks with your new blog worked out.

SRQ said...

I just accessed your new site sans problems. Looks good! I've never had the stomach to even think about trying a simulator ride.

I don't think I have ever seen one of these but I have been to Farmington, NM. Did you go in?

The link worked this time and the new blog looks very impressive. worth the effort, I'd say.

I rode one of those things with the son of a friend. The kid love it, me, not so much.
