The story of amusement rides.
The concept of an "attraction", which comes from the French "Attraction" - "Attraction". The first attractions appeared in the Middle Ages: in summer - swings and carousels, in the winter - ice roller coils.

First, only courtiers rode on the towns of Nartov, and for the people, the mechanical slings were built for the first time after many years - in 1896 at the Nizhny Novgorod exhibition.
In 1884, the Americans have improved this system, and in New York, mechanized slides appeared with trolleys on the rollers who descended along the rails. After a while, in 1897, such an attraction erected the Japanese.

In each cabin there were 20 seats and 40 standing places, and thus the total passenger's attraction was 2160 people.
