Pretty good ride. Almost always a walk on but I found it to be pretty slow and kind of boring but it gives some great sights while your at the top. Its ok.

This is the best Huss condor Ive been on. Thanks to its high capacity, Flying Falcon is always a walk on, though loading was very slow. Hershey ran this really quickly and the spinning was excellent. The ride also gave great views and the part where they stop the ride at the top and then restart the spinning was pretty thrilling on this one. Also, this has a pretty long cycle.

Very weird. It goes pretty fast and i enjoyed it while it was going up, but then once they stopped it and restarted it i just wasnt so sure. Really long line and the two opps were horrible and took their good ole time.

I loved this ride when I was 8. I went on it again and it wasnt as fun. A solid flat ride though. I wonder if anyone has ever jumped out since there is only the gate?

Its usually a walk-on and they sometimes let you on for more than one ride cycle without getting off. The ride can go pretty fast and it is SOOOO much fun!!! I went on it twice in one day by myself, which I very rarely do. Especially for something that goes really high, because I am afraid of heights, but I can look down all the way at the top of the tower without getting scared. Its especially pretty at night when everything is all lit up. Anyway, its a lot of fun, and its like a scrambler in the sky. But no restraints except for that small door? Seems like anyone could jump right out if they got scared.

Random Fact ~ There are 28 cars on the Flying Falcon.

This is one ride you dont see everyday! I think this is the best flat Hershey has. The speed is perfect. I also think it offers great views of the park.

Minetown is home to some of Hersheypark’s tallest attractions in the Kissing Tower and the Great Bear, but often overshadowed is the area’s best flat ride, the Flying Falcon. One of the four Huss condors currently operating in the United States, the Flying Falcon is a pretty rare type of ride, which is unfortunate since it is a lot of fun. While approaching the ride, it is evident just how well maintained the ride is. Not only does each Falcon car sport a fresh and vibrant paint scheme, but the tower itself looks great. I especially like the neat falcon figure perched at the peak of the tower. Fortunately, the Flying Falcon is always a walk-on thanks to its high capacity and relatively fast loading. The ride begins by rotating very quickly just like a scrambler. Not only is the spinning quite forceful, but the thrill is augmented by the gentle swinging of the cars. Soon enough, the cars rise to the top of the tower while maintaining the spinning. The result is a pretty disorienting ride. Midway through the ride, the spinning stops while the ride is at the top. Personally, I enjoyed this surprise since it gave me a moment to admire the view, especially of Storm Runner. Soon enough, the spinning recommences and seems faster than ever. Increasing the thrill is the fact that the cars seem to be far higher off the ground than they actually are thanks to the aforementioned swinging of the cars. Eventually, the cars slowly lower to the base of the tower though, ending the ride. Not only is the Flying Falcon run considerably faster than the one I rode at the Great Escape, but Hershey also ran a very long program on this on. Overall, the Flying Falcon is an above-average flat and the better of the two Huss condors I’ve been on. Thanks to the combination of fast spinning and vertical action, this quite a disorienting ride. Being one of Hersheypark’s best flat rides, I usually try and ride this once per visit. Therefore, I definitely recommend trying this flat if you are a fan of spinning rides since this one is a pretty unique and thrilling experience.
