Greetings from Europe,

Postby HUSSRAINBOW » Sat Jul 07, 2012 6:49 am

Hey everyone, just thought I'd check in from Prague....
Just left Berlin and managed to find a month long small-ish carnival that was on...

Volksfest Berlin

Mondial Eclipse (Capriolo)
Huss Devil Rock (Flic Flac)
Huss Frisbee
Huss Break Dance
Huss Magic

There were other rides, will post the photos soon.

It was a ridiculously hot day, so only managed to ride Eclipse and Frisbee
Wow! I really wish we had a Capriolo in Australia, they operate soo much smoother and pack a much bigger punch, especially the free fall from up the top! Also loved the fact that we were locked upside-down entirely through the station! Fantastic!!

Also rode Frisbee, the crazy Pirate on steroids, it was fun up until the boat spun ridiculously fast at the end of the ride! It is absolutely insane! An awesome Huss Ride I wish we had here, the overall ride is massive, but sitting on it the boat is smaller than first thought.

I didn't get to ride Devil Rock but it will be at Hamburg DOM in a few weeks, so I can ride it there :-)

Next up is Fete Des Tuileries in Paris! Which we all know features Fleur's beautifully kept Huss Rainbow!
Will be uploading photos and videos as well from those.

Hope everyone is well

Chris.

Those coasters would've been freaking awesome! What's HUSS Take Off like? Whilst I'm at it all of the other rides listed!
I am a ride operators dream or nightmare...you decide.

Take Off is awesome. Especially when the cars spin the same way as the deck. Pins you to your seat like crazy.
The Top Spin was good. Much bigger than I thought, the program on it was sh**, as it only did about 3 flips the entire cycle.
Airwolf is by far one of the worst rides I've ever ridden. It's easy to understand why Space Roller has been successful. This was just annoying and jolty and didn't give much of a thrill at all. Mondial Shake was crazy. A bad ass version of a Break Dance. It was awesome when your car stayed upside down for a full rotation of the floor.

Glad to hear you're having a great time on those legendary machines. Your trip reminds me of a similar one I did to the US some years ago. Probably similar rides too although you don't see too many Mondial traveling models in the States. My dream is to do Europe and make a comparison on amusement parks and carnivals.

Keep the updates coming when you can, they're great!

Unfortunately Konga wasn't at the DOM which was a bit annoying. Then I found out another XXL was at a carnival near us in Belgium but we were at the airport when I discovered that. I'm just happy I got to ride a Capriolo. That was my no.1 ride to try.
