Vs. Topics aren't allowed, but I'll make this quick.

Delerium (as long as you mean the PKI Delerium) is much much better. I didn't think it was very nauseating at all.

La Rev is good, but not close to Delerium. I actually think its a little bit more nauseating than Delerium, but its still not too bad in that category.

And if you meant PGA's Delerium, then its the same thing as La Rev.

How about:
PKI's Delerium

Vs.

PCW's Psychlone?

You got a Huss Giant at Kings Island, vs. a Mondail giant ride at Wonderland. Has anyone ridden BOTH, and give a valid opinion which is bestest?
Huss may be king of the flats... but Mondail sure has some great flats in their collection (too bad most USA parks pass them up)

I almost skipped out on La Revolucion due to nausea fear. Not only was it not nauseating *at all*, but it was a heck of a lot of fun, and worth a couple of re-rides later in the day.

Hearing the comparisons, I've *got* to get to PKI next season...

KMG Afterburners (La Revolucion) are superior, IMO, to Huss's Giant Frisbee. Delirium is good, no doubt, but it's not as intense or forceful as the KMG product. However, I've heard Knott's runs their ride like crap (as does PGA) so if you want to really see what they're capable of, you have to catch a traveling one or try out SCBB's.

I've been on both, Dawgbyte. Delirium's the more forceful of the two, but I still prefer Psyclone, because it seemed to have a longer cycle, has a better color scheme(IMO), and looks great at night. The fact that we rode it about 20 times when I was at PCW with no wait may have something to do with it also.:)

I found the traveling Afterburner to be a bit of a letdown. Everyone always said that it has more rotation and spin to it. The only plus it has over La Rev is that one set of seats isn't on top all the time, you keep switching.

But then again, thats not a problem for me on La Rev, since I always sit in the seats that will be at the top of the rotation!

Even so, I found the Huss Giant Frisbee to be far more forceful than La Rev or the traveling Afterburner.

No, Afterburners (and Huss' Giant Frisbee) are all about the swinging. Standard-sized Huss Frisbees are all about the spinning.

It is possible that the Afterburner you rode was running a crappy program. Either that or it's just not you're thing (though I'm inclined to believe that it is, since it's very similar to Huss' Giant Frisbee, just more forceful).

Ride the Fireball (Afterburner) at Santa Cruz. BY FAR the best Afterburner ever. I am not even going to talk about how long and intense the cycle is. Never tame it down SCBB!

The reason the larger Afterburner models don't run all that intense (such as La Revolucion) is because they tend to burn up the motors.

La Revolucion (and Delirium at PGA) are manufactured by Chance, but they're both identical to the KMG rides (ie built from the exact KMG blueprints). Basically, Chance has the rights to manufacture and sell the Afterburner in the States due to a deal made with KMG.

And yes, PKI's Delirium is a Huss Giant Frisbee.

The reason why most parks in the USA pass up the Mondial Rides is because they can be Maintenance Nightmares. Take for instance Samurai at Lagoon (2000 Mondial Top Scan). Samurai had an oil leak about a month ago, just another headache, or so we thought. We had to disassemble the POS to get to the freakin problm to fix it, and we're still waiting for the right part. Then there's Cliffhanger (2001 Mondial Splashover) or "Clifford: The Big Red Ride" as it's commonly referred to because it likes to "Play Dead." Cliffhanger threw a Motor Bearing the first week in June, and we're still waiting for the right parts so we can fix it. Cliffhanger has never operated as it was supposed to, and apparently Mondial forgot to make components WATER PROOF! The ride has essentially become a 2.5 Million Dollar paperweight. Perhaps we have more problems because of our Desert Climate or maybe they've just been defective from the beginning. Top Scan's can be an aweful lot of fun though, at least when they are operating.

That's strange. Mondial aftersales over here in the UK is unbeatable.

The speed of rotation on the park mount Afterburners is due to the fact that the gondola is heavier (so it cannot turn as fast without excerting a large ) and also because the gondola is larger too which means that rotations will feel slower too.

Actually, if the gondola is spinning at the same angular rate on the larger ride, you're moving FASTER linearly. If they move at the same linear rate, then the larger gondola rotates slower.

Just picking nits on a quiet Saturday morning. ;)

However, as you said, the larger gondola will require more force to achieve that same angular velocity...

Greg, god, yes, you're right. Oops.

I disagree that Afterburners 'are all about the swinging' as mentioned in another post above. If they're run properly, they should be about everything. One that I've ridden spun so fast that I could hardly pull my head from the headrest!
