Huss or Chance: Which do you prefer?

Thursday, April 19, 2001 6:25 AM
I know we all of coasters more than spin n' pukes, but which flat ride manufacturer do you guys prefer? Huss or Chance? I personally like Huss for their Fly Away, Frisbee, and Top Spin, but Chance makes a couple good ones, such as the double inverter.

My favorites are Chance's Chaos and Zipper (the carnival favorite!).

But I loathe their portable torture chambers also known as Tobogan's. Do they still make these?

I don't know, I've never ridden the Tobaggon. Is it built by Chance or Huss?

They are (were?) built by Chance.

I've ridden two of them. Back in the late 70's / early 80's Hersheypark had two of them sitting right off Carrousel Circle. I rode one of them. I also rode one at Lakemont Park last year. They are slow, boring, and painful (the way you are pinned to the floorboard of the little car you ride in).

According to the RCDB, there are 5 of them as permanent instalations. (4 in the US, 1 in England). Who knows how many are travelling with carnivals and fairs.

I definitely prefer Huss, makers of such fine devices as the Jump, Frisbee, and Breakdance. I do however like the Chaos made by Chance also.

I'd have to go with Huss, the Top Spin, Condor, Enterprise, Pirate & Rainbow are some of my favorite flat rides. Chance is great too with Chaos, and Wipeout/Trabant, I've never been on a Zipper though because I've never seen one at an amusement park, and I don't feel safe enough to ride something like that at a carnival. But Huss is still the best.

I've never ridden a Zamperla, but they seem to be cool. I like the Top Spin, except for that suspended part where you are hanging upside-down for awhile. I also LOVE the Air Jumper by Vekoma. Otherwise known as the Time Warp at SFNE. I love the suspended part.

The Zipper is amazing. If you think you've known fear on any ride before, The Zipper completely redefines your definition. First of all, they put you in this claustraphobic car with a metal grate in front of you. Then they start the ride and all hell breaks loose. The cars flip at random and the travel up the rails in between flipping is completely unnerving. Ride a Chance Chaos and it'll give you a small sampling of what a Zipper is like.

Accually, my favorite is neither. I like Scwarzkopf. Out of the flat rides at SFGAm, the Fiddler's Fling (Calypso 3), East River Crawler (octopus ride), and Orbit (enterprise) are awesome (for flat ride, anyways). The only Chance ones I know of are at carnivals. I am terrified of anything at a carnival. Even the lady bugs! You never know how powerful the motor on it is, and if it loses control, you could go for a flight with that bug! Yes, this means I have never been on a Zipper, and I never will be since that time I saw a bolt fall to the ground while waiting in line for one (at which point, I left the carnival)
