Video: Tornado (Huss Flipper)

Tornado is a large, flashy Huss manufactured ride that goes by the trade name of Flipper. The ride is pretty much what you’d get if a Round Up and a Tilt-a-Whirl had a baby. The ride spins at variable speeds so sometimes the cars will be pinned facing inward due to the G force while other times the cars will be freely swaying and spinning when the platform is rotating at slower speeds. This ride is owned by Reithoffer Shows and was filmed at the 2010 North Brunswick, NJ Youth Festival. It’s one of two Huss Flipper rides traveling in the US (Europe hoards them all apparently, haha.)

    THE HUSS TORNADO LOOKS LIKE A BADASS RIDE TO GO ON. I THINK WE NEED MORE OF THE EUROPEAN RIDES AT FAIRS HERE IN THE STATES. I’M WILLIN TO BET MONEY THAT ANY GERMAN OR EUROPEAN MANUFACTURED RIDES LIKE THE HUSS TORNADOS OR TOP SPINS WOULD OUT-GROSS ANY TILT-A-WHIRL OR CHANCE PHAROAH’S FURY AT ANY FAIR OR CARNIVAL HERE IN THE U.S.
