The HUSS Ranger was first manufactured by HUSS in 1981, and is now in approx. 32 locations worldwide. Some 3 years later, the Ranger design was modified to form Rainbow - each ride offering a completely different sensation.
The Ranger looks impressive at night with a height of 66 ft and a dazzling light display. Though single-armed, it accommodates a huge capacity of 40 adult riders in 8 rows.
The operator has a choice of 4 ride programs or manual operation with a fast or slow orbit with varied heights. Unlike any other pendulum ride, the ship can orbit 360° from a stationary position due to its nearly 2-tonne counterweight.
The Ranger has an innovative safety harness for the rider. Instead of over-the-shoulder restraints, it uses fully-automated rectangular pads which pushes against the riders stomachs. (see photo) First-time riders are always taken by surprise as the safety harness closes, giving them the feeling they are about to be completely crushed! Nevertheless it is quite comfortable and fairly unrestrictive to the rider’s upper body unlike most upside-down rides using an over-shoulder restraint.
Like Rainbow, the arm is swung hydraulically with four 90Kw drives.
