Anyone know if this HUSS creation has been installed in any parks...or if it is supposed to be installed in any parks anytime soon. Thanks for the info.

The Land of the Giants concept is fundamentally just an example of the capabilities of the Huss Giant Rides. This is about as likely to be installed at any park ever as much as their freefall (or is it accelerated falling!) tower themed to a space launch.

The only Huss ride I know of off the top of my head that actually uses one of Huss' out-of-the-box theming solutions of Ripsaw at Alton Towers.

The idea of the Land of the Giants would be nifty, from a spin-n-puke enthusiast's point of view. But in reality, most people here don't exactly race to a hurlomatic as soon as they get to the park. And that is the same with the non-hardcore enthusiast people who visit (slightly more politically correct than saying General Public). It would be stupid for any park anywhere to put in the +$50 mil investment for rides that have a history of being realtively unpopular, and most parks have troubles with their flat, spinning rides as they age.

Tell you what, if an park ever installs one of these Land of the Giants, I will personally fly, first class all the way, via Singapore and somewhere in Southern France, to the park, even if it is here in Australia (rofl just thinking about it). Just to attend the opening of this new section. I will then proceed to ride each of these rides naked. Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to have to pray.

So what if the best coaster in Australia is a second hand Arrow?

More than likely, Tomb Raider, is one of these designs, definetly a Huss Giant Spin! ;)
