I would like to see a Huss Delirium constructed. I finally realized that it's like 3 Frisbees with water.

Also, what happened to the new style of PTC trains that were possibly going on the Ravine Flyer but did not to make sure it hit deadline? I believe they were tailored, 1 row per car and longer like Millennium Flyers.

Land of Giants would be awesome for Magic Moutain! Remember that great Huss Flat Ride themed section of Heide Park? I guess that is the same idea just made up of Huss's small flats.

That is correct. Opening is now scheduled for April 4, 2009, which is also opening day for the 2009 season.

I will provide you with maximum pleasure.

What exactly does the Delirium ride do?

I would love to see more Giant Topspins and Jump 2's built. The Crypt is an incredibly thrilling ride, and Sledgehammer (while not as thrilling as it looks) is fun, too!

I think both would be very easy to market... What are HUSS' prices like?

Sledgehammer is a really good ride when it does its drops and quick rises, the spinning gets old real quick tho.

Huss rides are EXPENSIVE...especially the giant type ones.

^I found the only "thrilling" part of the ride to be it's double-drop near the end of the cycle (awesome airtime). Still though, the whole idea is really impressive...

IMO thats better than the Land Of The Giants. It's too bad HUSS stopped making alot of their "older" rides. They were the best.
I can't imagine how much that Land Of The Giant's package as a whole would cost. HUSS rides are expensive, and if I remember correctly, they are a pain in terms of maintance and reliability.

Fabulously FIERCE!

Huss is one of my personal favorites! Growing up, it just seemed coincidental that most of my favorite flats were Huss rides, my all-time favorite being Rainbow.

I wouldn't get too excited about Delirium. It's geared as a family ride, and I personally think it too elaborate mechanically for a family flat to ever be sold.

My favorites growing up were the Troika (triple play at Marriott's Great America) and the Swing-a-Round (Big Top at Marriott's Great America) But as far as the Enterprise goes, I think the Schwarzkopf model is much better than the Huss model!

IAAPA Re-Cap: S & S Power

Always innovative and cutting edge is S&S Power. I am really intrigued with some of their new concepts. I wonder if they will ever be able to scale down the 4D concept so more parks could afford them. Get to work on that Stan!
