Condor is made up of 4 arms with four 7 car wheels on each end. The cars are able to freely swing back and forth and riders sit in an inline style, meaning that one person is in the back and one is in front, not like most common log flume seating arrangements.
The 4 arms are attached to a drive motor in the center which rotates the wheels around the center of the ride and also climbs the tower.
The attraction’s main components are a foundation base frame, a square shaped tower of 31m in height, a lift assembly and four radial spar boxes carrying the ‘satellites’ which are star shaped steel frames.
The ride carries a total of 56 passengers who are lifted at 0.8m/s, while the central rotation moves at 8rpm and the gyros counter rotate at 22rpm. This results in a swift but comfortable movement with a pleasant acceleration towards the centre and a swing outwards at the extreme radius.
