  • Condor est le nom d’un modèle de manège fabriqué par Huss Park Attractions.
  • The Condor is the trade name of an amusement ride sold by HUSS of Bremen, Germany. It was debuted at the 1984 New Orleans World's Fair, under the name "Cyclo Tower".The Condor has 28 steel-framed gondolas, each equipped with a painted fiberglass shell - frequently to resemble the seats to be an actual bird. The seats hold one or two people seated in each, one sitting behind the other if they decide to ride double. It can accommodate approximately 1,700 riders per hour. The automatic doors on the ride are operated by pneumatic air pressure, and are manually opened and closed during necessary points at the beginning/end of the ride cycle. The ride uses a cable and counterweight system within the tower to assist with the raising and lowering of the rotating assembly.There is a DC induction motor located at the end of each arm responsible for rotating the gondolas, as well as three more on the middle lifting structure used for rotation of the entire assembly and travelling the tower. To start the ride, most Condors use a three-button start system - with three buttons required to be hit at the same time to start the cycle. (The operator in the booth uses his or her thumbs on the two buttons located on the panel, while an attendant in a location around the perimeter must be holding that one as well.)Operators of the ride have option to operate the ride at different speeds and rotation configurations (forward and reverse), with the potential for unique computerized programs on each ride. These unique motions can also be controlled manually. Most Condor installations are park models. An exception is one of the few traveling models left in the world, that being Blume & Wollenschlaeger's "Ikarus-Der-Mythos". The Ikarus was one of the fastest Condors still in operation, and featured different and unique manually operated ride cycles, usually with reverse rotation used. Ikarus was taken off the funfair circuit and put into storage in 2007.The Condor offers a scenic view combined with an exciting ride cycle, making it one of the most distinctive amusement experiences in the industry. Most recently, in 2007, Huss discontinued the manufacturing of new installations of the ride. In 2013, Huss re-introduced the Condor back to their line of rides. The 'new' condor is ultimately the same as the 1st generating Condor but has an improved design which is highly beneficial. The 'new' Condor is known as Condor 2-G (2nd Generation)
  • De Condor is een attractietype wat vooral te vinden is in pretparken. De attractie bestaat uit een hoge paal. Een kar met vier armen wordt aan de paal naar boven en beneden getakeld. Rond elke arm is een carrousel geplaatst met meestal zo'n 7 kleine gondels, waar zo'n 1 à 2 mensen in gaan. Vanwege de hoge hoogte wordt de suggestie gewekt dat de gondels echt vliegen. De carrousels draaien niet hard: de attractie is vooral bedoeld om een uitzicht over het omliggende gebied te bieden.
