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.
Not chaotic, but related to this

||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!
