This started in 2001 after the fire that broke out in 2000. It has since been replaced with a similar enterprise. A standard Huss Enterprise, a number of pods are fixed around the outside of a wheel. These seat two and hand no restraints, relying on force alone to keep you seated. The whell spins faster and faster, and the pods swing out to line up with the wheel. The wheel then raises until vertical. After a number of revolutions, it lowers back down to ground level.

A smooth ride, but with the power to induce motion sickness!

This ride spent much of 2001 out of action, and slow loading meant large queues.
