The very first Mondial Splash Over prototype to be installed at the park features a slight variaton on the HUSS Top Spin. Two gondolas consisting of twenty seats each preform snap roll-overs and stalls in mid air 50ft above the ground. The individual gondolas are attached to two giant arms that rotate clockwise and counter-clockwise in unison.

7-Good. Less dizzying than it looks. The water fountains absolutely drench you, so be prepared to get wet. I found the slow, backwards, upside-down descent rather unpleasant, though the quick rolls compensated for that. The ride includes zip-up pouches to contain user's valuables, though those pouches will also get soaked. - Joshua Counsil
