    Huss Park Attractions is celebrating a brand refresh with the launch of five new signature rides, two additional immersive rides and the announcement of the world's first Break Dance 5 installation at the Prater in Vienna, Austria.

    Booster Revolution

    Spinning satellites and rotating gyros will boost your riders into fun with sudden swings and unpredictable loops on this HUSS® Original. With variable speeds, and even the option to reverse direction, your riders experience sudden sideways swings, giddy spins, and multiple dizzying loops at high speed. Our new, next-generation gondolas offer easy access, more room, and safety, and more comfort for passengers.
    The show doesn’t stop there: The Operator center-stage creates a whole new spectacle and show for riders and spectators alike, and fully customizable theming, lighting, ride cycles, and special effects mean your riders will experience your story the way you want to tell it.



    Break Dance 5

    Spin out to the beat on this fastest and most powerful version of the best flat ride in the world! This compact, easy-to-install HUSS® Original is a Family and Thrill experience in one, with next-generation gondolas that offer easier access, more room, and combines main disc slope and gyroscopic movements to create a “cycloid trajectory.” Our proprietary design and weight displacement in our next-generation safety-enhanced gondolas result in unpredictable 360° spins, sending your riders on the adventure of a lifetime. With a huge number of controlled show ride staged movements and countless free ride patterns, riders enjoy endless variation and thrills. And different intensities mean that you can accommodate different target groups, ideal for two-queue operation.
    And the show doesn’t stop there: The operator center-stage enables a whole new spectacle for riders and spectators alike, and fully customizable theming, lighting, ride cycles, and special effects mean your riders will dance to the tunes the way you want to play them.

    The first two renderings of the Break Dance 5 are what is coming to Prater in Vienna.





    Magic 2G

    The Magic has gotten even better with the latest updated version of this successful HUSS® Original. With more power and a wide variety of movements – spins, lifts, rotations – riders experience an entirely new ride sensation, making this perennial favorite a state-of-the-art park highlight. Exciting for all age groups, the combination of movements is seemingly endless, with cycloid patterns, circular and triangular paths, unpredictable acceleration, lifts, and rotations, even magical moments of shocking weightlessness!
    Our next-generation gondolas offer easier access, more room, more comfort, and more safety than ever before, and fully customizable theming, lighting, ride cycles, and special effects mean your riders will be under whatever spells you want to cast.



    Sky Tower Multimedia

    Our landmark Sky Tower takes viewers of all ages and heights up among the clouds for breathtaking panoramic 360° views, and now we’ve raised the stakes by adding the multi-sensory movie experience of our new Explorer attraction with immersive content and full sensory stimulation!
    Riders start by boarding the capsule at ground level, and once inside the sensory-controlled capsule their journey begins. With multiple custom themes, a descent through an iris into the underground 360° cinema takes them to, for example, a deep dive, a space flight, or a fantasy world of your own creation, complete with sounds, motion, climate control, and other sensory inputs.
    When they ascend from their movie experience riders enjoy 360° of unrestricted view through the full double-curved glass windows as they glide smoothly up and down the powerful structure, taking viewers into the sky and beyond.



    Shot´n Drop Multimedia

    Speed. Freefall. Weightlessness. IMMERSION! It’s all here in this extreme indoor thrill ride experience. Using innovative design and a state-of-the-art ride system, we’re catapulting 28 thrill-seeking riders up to dizzying heights – as fast 45 km/h at 2.0g and as high as 33 meters – and dropping them faster than gravity at accelerations up to -1.5g, stopping anywhere, bouncing smoothly, then shooting up again for another thrill!
    But that’s just the beginning. We’re completely immersing your riders in a high-quality multisensory multimedia experience, perfectly synchronized to the ride program, and custom-programmed to your theming to take your guests on the ride of their lives.
    Customizable theming, lighting, ride cycles, and special effects let you tell your story the way you want to on this small footprint, fast-loading, high-capacity thriller.




    Spinning Cruiser

    Feel the wind in your hair as you cruise smoothly along…until unexpected acceleration shoots you forward, then someone hits the brakes and you’re sliding, spinning, laughing, and having new adventures at every turn! This brand-new HUSS® Original is a Family and Thrill experience in one, compact and easy to install, with next-generation gondolas that offer easier access, more room, more comfort, and more safety than ever before. With a huge number of controlled show ride staged movements and countless free ride patterns, riders enjoy endless variation and thrills. And different intensities mean that you can accommodate different target groups, ideal for two-queue operation.
    The inclined ride platform and the Operator center-stage creates a whole new spectacle and show for riders and spectators alike, and fully customizable theming, lighting, ride cycles, and special effects mean your riders will be cruising and spinning to the story you want to tell.



    Troika 2G

    Riders love Troika, one of the most popular rides in the world. With this new generation HUSS® Original, unique ride patterns and instantly recognizable design make it the perfect amusement ride for the whole family, and because bigger is better, more of your guests can enjoy this high-capacity ride! Central rotation, exciting lifts, counter-rotation, and gondola swings to create an exhilarating “cycloid” movement with fast but smooth changes in height, speed, and direction, and our next-generation gondolas offer easier access, more room, more comfort, and more safety than ever before.
    And fully customizable theming, lighting, ride cycles, and special effects let you tell your story the way you want to tell it.

    SeaWorld Abu Dhabi, the region’s first Marine Life Theme Park, welcomes guests to the coldest of its eight realms: Antarctica! Here, penguins are the main attraction with six different species – King, Gentoo, Rockhopper, Chinstrap, Macaroni and Adelie penguins – ready to charm guests of all ages. From the regal stature of King penguins to the distinctive charm of the Macaroni penguins, guests will have the chance to observe and learn more about these amazing animals up close while also feeling the realm’s frosty climate simulating the planet’s coldest region – the land where the penguins reign.

    SeaWorld Abu Dhabi General Curator, Rob Yordi, said: “Guests venturing into the Antarctica realm at SeaWorld Abu Dhabi will be transported to the icy realms of our South Pole, where they will be met by our six different species of penguins and witness their playful antics and engaging behaviors up close with educators ready to answer any questions guests may have about our penguins. Simultaneously, guests can also enjoy a fun time at Penguin Play – an elevated play area with slides, net climbing and soft play elements. As for the penguins themselves, our state-of-the-art, dynamic penguin habitat ensures optimal conditions for our penguins all year round. We've made it our mission to provide an authentic and enriching environment for these fascinating animals, whilst offering our visitors an immersive Antarctic experience.”

    The well-being of SeaWorld Abu Dhabi’s Antarctic ambassadors is top priority, with a dedicated expert zoological team ensuring that the habitat’s air temperature is maintained at a cool 1°C and the water at a crisp 7°C, providing an ideal climate for the penguins. Furthermore, the Advanced Animal Lighting System (AALS) has been installed to replicate the seasonal changes of Antarctica. This sophisticated approach guarantees optimal welfare conditions for the penguins throughout the year, whether it's during the molting season, nesting season, or any other day.

    Legoland Sichuan was illegally approved for land acquisition and use because the Renshou County government did not follow the proper laws and regulations, so this could cause further delays for the park.
