Minnesota Man who Invented the Tilt-A Whirl Ride Will Be Honored With New Monument

Thanks to Herb Sellner, the inventor of the Tilt-a-Whirl ride making kids and adults vomit since 1926.

Sellners hometown of Faribault Minnesota will be honoring the late inventor with a monument of a restored Tilt-a-Whirl car that will be permanently placed in front of The State Bank of Fairbault.

According to GOMN.com this original car was restored by Dwight Henning and Karen Bassert who both worked at the Sellner factory that makes the ride, until it was moved to Texas in 2011.

My first ride I ever went on as a kid was a Tilt-a-Whirl  and I remember I was terrified! I was riding with my sister and I felt so sick and I kept yelling “Mister stop the ride!” He did not of course, my sister was laughing at me the whole entire time and let’s just say by the time I was able to get off the ride it was not a pretty sight. And to this day I can’t do rides.
