Heritage & Design
Having been known under various names overseas (Mexican Hat, Razzle Dazzle & Hully Gully), Ivan Bennett started manufacturing this ride in 1965 under licence from the US company Chance. The ride became extremely popular in Germany under its name ‘Trabant’, and as such, it launched in the UK under the English translation of ‘Satellite’.
The idea behind Satellite was one of complete simplicity underlying a clever notion of apparent erraticness. Steel cars were fixed to a rotating base, and the cars rose and dived as the whole ride rotated.
The Satellite style of light consists of lamps that sit proud, reflecting the cars that sat on the ride. In recognition of the materials used to produce Bennett’s original ride, the base is manufactured from stainless steel which has retained a brushed effect as a nod to the scuffed appearance that would occur around the cars on the ride as children (and adults alike) scrambled to get their seat for the next ride.
