Abstract (en)

[origin: RU2201787C2] FIELD: sportive and entertaining equipment. SUBSTANCE: apparatus is designed similar to switchback and has at least one cart movable along sloped way by gravitational force. Speed of each cart may be individually adjusted by driver. Way is composed of two tubular drive rails, upon which cart wheels or slides rest. Drive rails are fixed by means of transverse carcasses in exactly spaced relation with respect to one another. Carcasses are supported on columns, which are equipped with clamping shoes fixed on their lower sides and providing reliable supporting of columns upon ground. Carcasses between drive rails have two guiding rails extending in parallel with drive rails. Carts have L-shaped guiding consoles extending downward between guiding rails. Each guiding console embraces with its horizontal strip from the bottom respective guiding rail. Apparatus may be constructed on slopes to provide for longer and safe descending of user. EFFECT: enhanced reliability in operation, simplified construction and reduced adverse effect upon environment. 12 cl, 6 dwg
