So it seems Strates has bought a new ride from Huss, or at least is booking the ride into the Horry County Fair.

On the Horry county fair facebook page it has a picture of a Huss Frisbee and states that the ride will be there for the first time and the first time in America.

It's a great looking piece and with the return of the Huss Pirate that should make for a great year, if he bought it. Might be booked, does anyone know for sure yet?

Reminds me of the early days on this board... all the "I know something you don't know but I can't tell you what it is" stuff...

Ok, so maybe booked then, I will admit what I posted is all I know, just going on what I saw on the fair FB site, there is nothing on Strates FB page, or website.

But I figured if it's something on FB then it would be ok to discuss on here.

i respect the privacy if the company is going to make a formal announcement or if it just a rumor. looks like someone would make a statement with the piece going up in the air and it is being advertised as being there.

Yes, This ride was built for 1996 for the Goetzke Family in Germany, They were the one's who had the Funtime Rocket, and also the Alex Airport Star Flyer that is now at Elitch gardens in Denver. They also currently have the Funtime 80m Gyro drop known as SkyFall that tours Germany and other places in europe
Here's some info for their Frisbee on a German ride database, guess they need to update it now

I didn't see this ride on the Erie ride list, is it no longer booking with Strates?

If not anyone know where it is? Just wondering.

The Frisbee went to Coney Island in June and recently left there for the Minnesota State fair.
