Enterprise is a ride model produced by German manufacturer HUSS Park Attractions.

Design

The Enterprise model has up to 40 people sit in 20 gondolas (each gondola seating 2 people) arranged in a circle. The gondolas are then spun clockwise before the arm lifts up, causing the riders to invert. The g-forces exerted on the riders eliminates the need for restraints.

Variants

  • Sky Lab - The Skylab model is essentially a giant version of the original Enterprise, the gondolas being able to hold 4 riders rather than the original 2.
  • Fly Away - A version of the Enterprise where riders lie down in a flying position. The wheel is also able to spin forwards and backwards.
  • UFO - A ride similar to the Enterprise. Riders stand facing the centre, akin to a Round-Up.
