SFGAm Condor

Wednesday, August 7, 2002 8:36 PM

Ok, I was riding the Condor today at SFGAm when I noticed this small white plate under the Huss manufacturer's plate. It said, as near as I can quote, that "this ride, equipment, and tools are all the property of Atica(?), NY Leisure Leasing Co."

My question is, the Condor has been in the park for ages. They can't honestly be leasing it, can they? If not, why the plate?

The ride came to the park used so possibly is was leased out before. I assume SFGAm just didnt remove the plate when they aquired it.

Ric Flair was hitting on the female host, he told her - "Space Mountain may be the oldest ride in the park, but it has the longest line." WOOOOO!

I'd guess Six Flags probably originally leased it for the ride rotation program, and when they ended the program, they bought it, which was when it happend to be at SFGAm. Too bad it ended up there. If it was gone, we might have a different, better flat ride there. Condor is just a boring scrambler 100 feet up with lateral force absorbing swinging cars... I'm rambling, ain't I? lol.

Well, TrBiggar, tell SFGAm to send it to Ohio. I enjoy the Condor.

Even worse ChiTown, the ride was @ SFMM before SFGAm. But this *is* Six Flags after all. The HUSS Jump "Jumping Jack Flash" @ SFGAdv still has the carnie name "FreeFall" still plastered all over it!

They removed a Bayern Curve for a Condor?! I might have to join you in that protest, 2Hostyl.

On a side not, anyone know what happend to the Bayern Curve? Did it get sent to another park or was it just scrapped?

Condor is a ride from HUSS that is basically, as TrBiggar said, a scrambler that moves vertically into the air.

You can see a picture and an animation of the ride at http://www.hussrides.com/513Classiccondor.htm

EDIT: got beaten to it...

Yeah, that was the best flat ride at PGA until Paramount took it out and put some stupid trampolines in its place The stupid trampolines replaced Revolution@SFNE, Skyhawk@PGA, and Liberty Swings@Pc all in one year. I don't care how much room they take up. Skyhawk was the best flat ride standing in the park. Now this is what your trip is like to PGA for a ride on the Sky Hawk:

Wife: Hey honey, I heard Great America is adding "13!" new rides and attractions this year. Why don't we take the kids?

Husband: Sure, it'll be a great time for the whole family.

(Later at Great America)

Husband: Dang, $38 bucks for each of us! They gonna' give me some new loafers too?

Wife: Roger, just give them the money!

Husband: Fine, here you are, ten (gives her a ten), twenty (gives her another ten), two hundred (closes his eyes and pulls out one more ten and a little chump change).

Ticket man: What is this?

Husband: Hey, don't act like you don't want it.

Ticket man: Whatever.

Wife: Roger, I don't understand why you have to be so cheap.

Husband: Because I'm still driven a tin can home to a cardboard box. Now lets quit talken' and ride somethin'. Kids, daddy is gonna' show ya his favorite ride when he was in college.............. Wait a minute! What's this rubber thingy? Where's the Skyhawk?

Ride Operator #1: Welcome Sir to the Astro Bungee. Would you like to take a bounce on one of our trampolines?

Husband: There is no way I'm payin' $8 to jump on some trampoline? If I wanted to bounce around, I'd be home with my wife on my mattress.

Ride Operator #1: Suit yourself. Say, you should try the Xtreme Skyflyer. That would a test for your screams.

Wife: Come on Roger, lets go check that out.

Husband: Its gotta' be better than this piece of junk.

Ride Operator #2: Are you ready to face your fears on the ultimate flight, the Xtreme Skyflyer?!!

Husband: Don't look too "X"treme to me. How much to take a swing on this thing man?

Ride Operator #2: That will be $39.99 for the three of you.

Husband: Ha, ha, that was a good one! You're jokin' right?

Ride Operator #2: Look fellow, if you're gonna' face your fears then you gotta' open your wallet!

Husband: Well if you're gonna' yell in my face, at least get a breath mint, ya ole badger.

Wife: You know, how about we try the new go-karts instead? What's it called, Blue Thunder?

Ride Operator #2: Yeah, it down that walkway, thru the Arbor Tunnel and past are "superb climbing challenge, The Wall."

Husband: Yeah, like I'm gonna' pay $10 bucks to climbs some big hunk of doo doo comin' out of the ground. Lets just head for the go-karts?

Ride Operator #2: Suit yourself.

Husband: What? $8 bucks for a spin around on some go-karts? In my day...

Ride Operator #3: In your day the karts were still running on neutral. Now, would you like a ride?

Husband: No, I'm going to get my self a hot dog and see if I can find something that doesn't cost an arm and a leg to ride.

Hot Dog Man: Welcome to Frank's, home of the franks, can I take your order?

Husband: Yeah, can I have one hot dog please?

Hot Dog Man: Sure, that'll be $2.00 man.

Husband: Here you go, and can I have some mustard with that too?

Hot Dog Man: That'll be another 75 cents please?

Husband: Ok! That's it! I have had enough with the extra charging! I am taking the next way out of here, just hope I don't have to buy a ticket for that too.

~~~~~~~~~~The End~~~~~~~~~~~

Even though I'm nowhere near Chicago, LA, or ATL, after that last post by Vertigo, I'm suddenly experiencing "Deja Vu"!

LOL! I think that applies to a lot of parks these days.

BTW, I liked Condor. I always flashback to a few of the scrambler accidents where the cars fly off when I ride spin 'n' pukes like that. Flashing back while that high in the air is creepy.
