The pendulum and spring driven amusements at this playground all incorporate chaos -- chaotic swings, teacup merry-go-rounds, bouncey seesaws, every lever has two fulcra.

       Interesting - a merry-go-round or roundabout is normally a flattish hollow metal cylinder. If this contained a very heavy horizontal compound pendulum, it could make the roundabout exhibit chaotic motion.

       I fear someone might get a broken bone or two...I do.

       Might need some damping to prevent excessive G's, but sounds like fun.

       Wish I had time to draw this one. The swings would need harnesses and if slightly counter balanced would let you do flips over the bar. (+)   

       What a great idea. Many past burning man swinging-things seem like good prototypes. Perfectly half-baked, just how I like it. Bun!
