German amusement ride manufacturer Huss Park Attractions has announced a world first installation at the famous Tivoli Gardens amusement park in Copenhagen, Denmark.
Due to open for the 2016 season is a new Huss Condor 2GH – the first such ride to be installed anywhere in the world and an attraction that provides guests with a choice of two ride experiences in different types of passenger gondola.
The new attraction, Fatamorgan, is situated in the oriental area of the park and is heavily themed and decorated with oriental floral and graphic ornamentation made of painted sheet metal to complement adjacent attractions.
The designs and decoration used were inspired by the celebratory oriental architecture of Tivoli and feature careful attention to detail which utilises bright oriental colouring and gold highlights to set a wonderful scene for riders.
The gondolas are also a key element of the theming and decoration. Passengers will ride in gilded winged lions and winged oryx flying on illuminated magic carpets which, coupled to spectacular lighting effects throughout the attraction provided by hundreds of LED lights, create an enchanting ‘Thousand and One Nights’ impression.
Incorporating hybrid gondolas, the Condor 2GH provides unique ride experiences, offering a choice of soft thrill ride and panoramic ride. Passengers will be taken to a height of 30m above the ground on a structure that will reach in total to 45m.
