What Did The Beatles Mean By “Helter Skelter”?

Helter Skelter” is a song by The Beatles written by Paul McCartney, credited to Lennon/McCartney from The White Album.  Have you ever wondered what a “Helter Skelter” actually is?

In British English, the term “Helter-Skelter” not only has its meaning of “in disorderly haste or confusion” but is the name of a spiraling amusement park slide. Users climb up inside the tower and slide down the outside, usually on a mat. Typically the ride will be of wooden construction and, in the case of fairground versions, designed to be disassembled to facilitate transportation between sites.

Where I stop and turn and I go for a ride
Till I get to the bottom and I see you again
Yeah, yeah, yeah
