I remember there was a big "double seater" Enterprise at Space World in Japan. That was amazing to ride. And there was one in Cosmoworld, Japan, too. But it wasn't running at the time. And here in Vancouver, Playland(PNE) has it's own Enterprise, which I've ridden a number of times.

In the last few years, I've been ending up with a headache, after riding. So I don't ride it very much, any more.

Playland's Enterprise is still running strong. I took this photo yesterday, at the park.

I have experienced one true classic Huss Enterprise, that being Enterprise at Dorney Park. Others that I have experienced which are quite rare and unique are the now former Orbiter (Huss Skylab/Giant Enterprise) at Canada's Wonderland and the Silver Bullet (Heintz Fahtz Enterpize ride) at Six Flags Darien Lake. Out of the three versions I have been on to date, I would have to say Orbiter at Canada's Wonderland was the best as it provided a thrilling and comfortable ride. While it is a shame that it was removed back in February, it did have a great run! :)
Canada's Wonderland is my home park!

I love these. Grew up riding it at Geauga Lake and then later CP. Sad to see CP remove theirs and not replaced with a newer model (as they are still made), but the new BBQ was a welcome addition.

A donkey is a domesticated member of the Equidae or horse family.

Still one of my absolute favorite rides. It's sad how hard it's getting to find them now. I did get on quite a few before they started to disappear though! I've ridden the ones at Rocky Point Park (park closed), Six Flags Great Adventure (now removed), Lake Compounce (removed), Hershey Park (removed), Kennywood, Cedar Point, and Fun Spot Orlando, plus the Giant Enterprise at Canada's Wonderland and Nightwing at Six Flags New England (Yeah, I actually managed to catch that for one of the few days or so it actually ran - it was pretty great, too.).

I keep hoping to see one of the new G2 Enterprises at a park I can get to, but no luck so far.

-edit-
And Dorney Park, I knew I was forgetting one.

Hands down my all-time favorite flat ride. I've done Orleans Orbit at California's Great America more times than I can count; the Enterprise at the Washington State Fair, but you must have a partner to ride that one so I've only done it a few times; and Zulu at World's of Fun. That was the first Enterprise I rode with sliding doors instead of the top that you pull down over you.

I know more about donkeys than women!

The one and only I ever rode was the Huss Enterprise at the World's Fair in New Orleans, La back in 1984
