I'm talking about like the one at Cedar Point amusement park in Ohio. I was wondering if there was a traveling model on the road somewhere? If not in the states, is there one traveling overseas possibly? From the videos i've seen of it on the internet, it looks breath-taking when riding it. ...just like when i ride a KMG FireBall or Freak Out, takes my breath away, yet Max Air goes lots higher in the sky than those two. I know i'd be scared first time on Max Air, but afterwards would probably love it just like i do on the KMG rides.

In the US, no. In Europe they have the KMG XXL which is a slightly taller version of the Huss Giant Frisbee, though inward facing. Though I think I remember somewhere in the US there might be a Zamperla outward facing Nitro roaming around. Could be thinking of Europe though. Is significantly smaller than the Huss Giant though, not the same league really.

The Max Air doesn't have as many strong forces as the KMG Afterburner type of ride. It does go higher in the air, it only spins so fast though. I think that there is a traveling Huss regular Frisbee somewhere (That's the one that has the inward facing, and it's more like a Round-Up ride.).

This is the ride if you have never seen it, or been on it:


It's also at Kings Island in Ohio.

The short answer: NO, not in the states, not in Europe, not anywhere...

This is a Huss Giant Frisbee, which was never intended to be portable, or for that matter, for the portable 'carnival' market. Too big, too heavy, too much work to assemble.

I always heard the only reason Kings Island got that is because Huss Screwed up thier Giant Top Spin ( Tomb Raider ) and it took them forever to get it right so Huss gave them a deal on the Giant Frisbee ( Delirium )...

Rode maxair this year and was very unimpressed. The way the restraints work you can't look left or rght which takes some of the interaction with the others on the ride. I'd take the kmg version anyday.
