It goes up, but at the same time goes down.
Up toward the sky, and down toward the ground.
It's present tense and past tense too.
Come for a ride, just me and you.

What is it?

Although my brain was going UP and DOWN with ideas,I couldn't come UP with the answer. A DOWNer for me. Good one.

I was thinking teeter-totter which is what we called it as kids. The clue about present tense, past tense gave it away. Good one

But why does this site have so many annoying cheer-leader comments?

It could save a lot of space if the host could limit such pretentious feedback.

"Great Puzzle!"
Thank You, but we dont need it to be said 50 times, haha

I don't often get riddles, so I was delighted to get this one so easily; present/past tense gave it to me.

Have to agree with darylk's comment. As nice as it is, it gets a little boring to always read complimentary comments. And yes, I realize children are often on this site, but they know about disagreements as well as we do.

But you can't make negative comments on such a good puzzle. If it was a stupid puzzle fair enough.

The old brain must not be working today.
Very clever, but too hard for me.

I thought it was a Ferris Wheel, though I couldn't come up past/present tense. I like this one.

I like this one! Used to love see-saws. When I was little, I always wanted to go to this park, where this big see-saw was. Now, I rarely ever see see-saws anymore (that sounded funny ). Lat time I saw one was in 2009, when I was visiting family in Maryland. Got 3 mosquito bites.
Love this teaser! Thanks for bringing back past memories!
