Dad, can we go to Windy Park today? The weatherman said there would be a gale later.

Amusment Park.
On a hill.
Wind-powered.

On calm days you have to content yourself with the roundabouts powered by the millstream in the valley.

Will I get to meet Windy Miller at last?

That's where the idea came from, po. I was stuck in traffic on the M1 watching the wind-turbine at the alternative energy place whizz around. It got me thinking about high-g rides based around big propellors, flywheels and clutch plates.

thinking of withdrawing my bun on the grounds of noise pollution. there are 350 odd kids in the playground all screaming into the wind at the tops of their voices.

Ah, the memories [po] screaming into the wind.

[looks at skinflaps' link] Looks like there's a bit of prior art on this. If you like this idea, please give skinflaps a croissant.
