Huss Frisbee Question

Thursday, May 27, 2004 4:36 PM
This may be one of the most stupidest questions anyone has ever heard, but I have never been on one of these things to know.

Do the Huss Fisbees totally Invert on the revolutions, or do they just swing high to almost vertical?

Also, if someone could find me a video of one of these, I would be greatful.

No, they don´t do full rotations. They giant versions swing up to 120°, while the "normal" sized versions are going up to 90°. Huss is currently offering a new, smaller version with outside seating and a higher swing radius.

The dutch company Mondial has recently produced the "Ultra Max" which is comparable to a smaller sized Frisbee but it has outside seating and does full rotations. It looks pretty intense. You can find a video of "Ultra Max" on mondials website (mondialrides.com)

Actually, they don't swing anywhere near vertical. The standard frisbees swing about 90 degrees to either side. There is info and a movie at

You can also check out info on the Giant Frisbees as well. Which, also do not invert BTw although they swing to 120 degrees or so.

Thank you for that video Gonch. Now I understand how it works. The ride swings much faster than I thought it would. Hopefully I can get down to PKI someday...

The beautiful thing about them is that even though the ride swings fast (72 mph I believe), the seat rotation is slow and is a ride that people like me who can't handle spinning rides can do.

The regular Huss Frisbee... or at least the one at New England... rotates pretty damn fast.

It is one of the ONLY rides I have ever walked off feeling really really sick off of! It's kinda sad especialy since I've handled multiple rides on the Rotor w/out feeling all that dizzy.

But the Giant versions both by Huss & Mondial are much smoother & gentle.

The only one I have been on was a giant version. I didnt know the smaller versions were faster spinners.

Um, last I checked, 90 degrees was vertical. (Unless, of course, you're referring to "upside down", which would actually be a 180 degree rotation).

No... in this case the 90 degrees is horizontal with respect to the ground. Vertical would be 180 degrees.

Yes, the emphasis of the regular-sized Frisbee seems to be a lot more on spinning than swinging. Both Frisbees I've ridden have kicked into a sort of "insane mode" at the end where they spin very fast. The Giant Frisbee, much like the Afterburner, seems to focus much more on swinging. Granted, the spinning is still an important part of the ride, but these rides don't spin nearly as fast (and they swing much, much higher). My personal preference is for the Afterburner and Giant Frisbee. By far.
