Delirium is here.

Thursday, January 9, 2003 2:23 PM

Parts for Delirium have begun to arrive as well as the crane. Right now I've only seen a section of the disc.

Also you can look on PKI Unlimited

So that was you in that other car?

Did you happen to notice the 200ft+ Crane behind Eiffel Tower? It was a folding type crane and my speculation is that when weather permits, Painting of the Eiffel tower will commence.

Chuck,

Didn't you know that was for the new SuperStrata Coaster Terrain twisting out and back B&M PKI's getting in 2004?!?! They're already starting construction. (sarcasm off)

This ride could possibly be installed at knotts this year, if rumor is true. I hope so. Looks incredible. Either this or the jump 2, or any other prototype ride that is already announced to be built this year by someone.

Beastfreak, No. There was a huge crane, They type they lift buckets up behind the tower. It's about six sections and kinds folds in different directions. I only seen it raise once then they kinds folded it down. Kinda like they were getting it set up.

BTW, I was there quite a bit earlier than you by judging your pictures. They had just set up the crane in the parking lot and began unloading the Container truck. Kinda interesting that the container had a removable tarp for the top. They unloaded everything with a crane. I also didn't notice any MAJOR big pieces yet.

Chuck, who will be back up that way sat morn but will give the heads up sat night after work

I live right there and I saw the cement truck around 1ish when I was coming back from class, and the Delirium stuff was there when I went by again around 4.

This is the most exciting news I've heard all day! I can't wait until the park starts vertical construction and we can see it finally see what this monster flat ride can do.

Thanks for reporting.

I heard most of the Huss Giant rides were running anywhere from 7-10 million bucks. They ain't cheap, so saldy don't expect to see them at every park.

PKI probally could have put in maybe 2 medium sized GCI woodies for the cost of either Delirium (Huss giant Frisbe) or Tomb: Raider The Ride (Huss Gaint Top Spin)

Then CP probably could have put in 5?! Boy, am I disappointed now!! ;)

Heraldvanyel, PKI has Beast, Racer, and Son of Beast. That seems like plenty of wood to me. Come to the east coast, we have plenty of GCI woodies.

Huss is promoting these rides as an alternative to an expensive coaster, so I think the $7-$10 million dollar range sounds a bit off. Like it or not, I think these Giant Flat Rides are the wave of the future.

I'd take my own wild guess to answer my own question in that "cheaper alternative" theory and say 5 million for a non themed model.

Funny, My guess on a Huss Giant would be closer to $5 mill considering most top flats are between 1-3 mill.

I am being told that the closed side of the Antique Cars is currently being removed as well.

Why does the name have to conflict so much with the Huss product names.

I don't think 7 million + isn't too far off for the price of a Huss Giant at all. I know that Psyclone at PCW, on top of being a prototype and custom ride, defintely pushed the price way beyond a standard flatride.

A few more parts show up. They don't seem to be in a hurry to get anything to the park. You would think that planners would be smart and have the supports delivered first before the seats and rotating arm.
