Noted on Boingboing.net this evening - a link to a cool project - "I connected a gas generator and air compressor to buckets of paint and secured them into the seats of a Scrambler amusement park ride. Once the ride was in motion, paint sprayed out of the benches onto vinyl tarps placed underneath. The result is a series of enormous hypocycloid designs which recorded the hidden patterns created by the ride as it turned."

Way cool! Are there any other rides that would make interesting work as well?

That's pretty cool. My vote for the next one would be "Bumper Car(s) as Etch-A-Sketch."

That actually could work, using only one bumper car, cover the floor with sand and attach a small brush to the back end of the car. Maybe... who knows?

Picture it with your little brother and his delicate stomach, about a dozen midway hotdogs liberally covered with mustard, and a seat bar loose enough to let him hang over the back of the seat when his stomach 'does its thing.'
