The HUSS UFO premiered in 1978 based on their successful Enterprise design. With passengers standing up and facing inwards, an entirely different ride sensation results to the enterprise; similar to a Roundup
but with a greater diameter and incline of 87°

Holding 48 standing adults or children in twelve 4-person gondolas, this 20m/66ft diameter HUSS monster holds a commanding presence as one of the best standup gravity ride sensations around.

UFO was never quite as popular as the Enterprise with approximately 15 units in existence mainly in Europe, two in North America, one in Sth Africa America and one in Australia.

  6. I rode one in the UK years ago while on a coaster tour and really enjoyed the ride though it wasn’t as scary as the original Hrubetz Round Up popular in the ’60s. Being totally enclosed took some of the fear factor away.

  10. Correction to Bruce’s response (#3 above). Darien Lake, located outside of Buffalo, NY, has a UFO. It is one of my favorites there.

  16. There was a UFO in the US at Long Island’s Adverntureland back in the late 80’s. It’s like the Round Up on steroids.

  18. Does anyone know of the u.f.o. ride that was popular in the 70’s? It had enterprise-like cars. It spun horizontally around an axis, like the enterprise, but then was pulled over an arch-like half circle – spinning riders upside down and then ending up on the other side of the arch.

  20. At Canada’s Wonderland I really like riding Nightmares. I like it how you are stuck to the wall while facing the ground at a 90 degree angle. Completely awesome! One of the best flat rides I have ever been on. It’s been running for over 32 years now (since 1981).

  21. The UFO at Luna Park Sydney has been removed from the park. Not sure why. I wonder if it has been relocated or sold??

    Cas - July 7th, 2014 at 2:16 am

  22. Cas,
    The UFO at Luna Park Sydney unfortunatly had reached the end of it’s mechanical life. It was removed and taken apart in 2013.
