Kings Dominion announces Delirium

Posted Thursday, August 20, 2015 7:14 PM | Contributed by Raven-Phile

The thrill ride will be located in the Candy Apple Grove section of the park and is set to open in the spring of 2016. Delirium is a powerful, spinning pendulum on which 40 riders will be strapped into their seats, facing outward on a giant ring. As their feet dangle, they begin slowly swinging back and forth while the ring starts to rotate.

So this one has 40 seats, whereas Delirium KI and MaxAir CP are 50 seats. What am I missing?

I'm thinking this might be a Mondial Revolution rather than a Huss Giant Frisbee. The Mondial ride comes in a 40 seat version, and the 115 foot height seems to line up with Mondial's specs. A Giant Frisbee would be slightly larger.

Someone mentioned Zamperla. Regardless, I doubt it's a Huss model even if that company was different than the current patent holders and name holders.

I can't find it now but someone confirmed with park PR that it is, in fact, a Mondial Revolution.

I can't say I'm too surprised. The Huss Giant Frisbee's have seemed to suffer from maintenance issues that cause extended downtime while the park replaces parts. I'm not sure the last time I remember seeing something like that, but it has happened enough that Cedar Fair might be wary to purchase another one.

I didn't think Cedar Fair would go back to Mondial, perhaps it is Zamperla.

Edit - Apparently it's definitely Mondial.

Hopefully KD's ride will run a better program. I found the Psyclone program to have too short a cycle and nowhere near the fun of the Huss Giant Frisbees....

Later,

I could have sworn KD already had one of these. Learn something new every day I guess.

Is black widow at Kennywood a mondial because it seemed inferior to the huss frisbees.

Kennywood's is Zamperla.

I think this one will have a longer ride cycle than the one at wonderland because wonderland gets heavier crowds so they have to make the ride higher capacity.
