The State Fair of Texas is probably the busiest short-term event in the world. It runs for 24 days through September and October and has done since 1886. Recent events have attracted around 3 million visitors.
One of the many rides at the Fair is a HUSS Pirate Ship – one of the Bremen-headquartered manufacturers’ flagship rides. The open, seated gondola seats between 45 and 55 passengers, using a pendulum motion to swing them up to 20m in the air at a 75 degree angle.
Older HUSS Pirate Ships, like the Fair’s model, use hydraulic drives, and these inevitably reach obsolescence after many years of use. In turn, this can cause significant problems, risking serious health and safety incidents and even the risk of high-pressure oil spilling and incurring environment agency fines.
