Rides boats, dropping ecstasy with miscreants (6,6)

I believe the answer is:

ferris wheels

Here is my best explanation:

'rides' is the definition.
(Ferris wheel is an example)

'ecstasy with miscreants' is the wordplay.
'ecstasy' becomes 'ferris' (I can't explain this - if you can you should believe this answer much more).
'with' becomes 'w' (abbreviation).
'miscreants' becomes 'heels'.
'ferris'+'w'+'heels'='FERRIS WHEELS'

'boats dropping' is the link.
This may not be right. Some or all of it may be part of another bit of the clue.
