HELP

Condor is a steel inverted roller coaster located at Walibi Holland in Biddinghuizen, Flevoland, Netherlands. Prior to 2014, the ride was originally known as El Condor.

Opened in May 1994, it was the first ever Vekoma Suspended Looping Coaster. It is one of two roller coasters to have the prototype track layout, the other being T3 at Kentucky Kingdom in the United States. On 5 July 1994, three people were hospitalised after two trains collided with each other.[1]

Design

Elements

Previously, El Condor had white track and turquoise supports. For the 2014 season, the track was repainted orange as part of a redevelopment of the surrounding area.

Trains

2 trains with 8 cars per train. In each car, riders are arranged 2 across in a single row, for a total of 16 riders per train.

For the 2021 season, the original trains were replaced with new rolling stock built by Vekoma. These trains feature vest restraints.[2][3]
