Where can I find these HUSS rides?

Friday, February 7, 2003 11:48 AM
I'm trying to find parks that have these HUSS rides in them:

Flic Flac
Tristar
Flipper
Booster
Speedy
Take Off

These rides look really cool, but I'm not sure if I've ever seen them in a park. Thanks!

There's a Tri-Star at Idlewild Park near Pittsburgh, the ride was at Kennywood for a year previous to that. It goes by the name Tri-nado.

Most of these are more common at traveling carnivals in Europe, though some of the larger US carnivals have them (or similar attractions). You won't find most of those in parks anywhere.

The only Flipper I've seen and ridden is called Tornado, and is owned by Reithoffer Shows. It looks and feels like it was the inspiration for the Breakdance. Let me tell you, when that platform tilts way up high, it is hard to hold on as the carriages flip back and forth. It's also interesting to note that it seats four people in each carriage. The only Jump in America is at SFGAdv, and it too is a portable ride (I know you didn't ask, but I just thought I'd throw in that little tidbit).

Well, next year there *will* be another Huss Jump in North America, though it will be a giant version. PCW is adding Sledgehammer.

Well, I meant next season since it still seems months and months away (oh wait - it is). :-)

There are only two Huss Boosters in the world, both travelling German fairs. You can find a travelling Huss Flic Flac both in Germany and the Netherlands. Trippsdrill has a Huss Flipper, briljantly themed after some sort of quiche.. Blackpool Please Beach has an old variant of the flipper called Black Hole.

That's all of the Huss rides you mentioned currently in Europe that I'm aware of, not including the traveling ones.

There is another Flipper in Heide Park, Germany, but the program is very boring.

I also think, there is a Booster new this year, for a park somewhere in northern Europe, but I forgot which one.

I could be very wrong as to the park, but I distinctly remember riding a Tri-Star in Great Britian. I believe it was at Flamingoland (also home to a Flight Commander, the fake Evolution, Huss Skylab, and some other wacky shtuff), but I'm not wholly sure.

-remembers never making the 60 inch requirement for Riverside's Tri-Star before it was removed for the Water Park-Alan

There used to be a TriStar at Riverside before it became SFNE. I rode it once when i was a kid and remember it being rather tame - basically a scrambler gone semi-veritcal, although the G's were a lot less because half the time you were fighting gravity.
