The Bird is Back!

Cousins of falcons, hawks, and eagles, the powerful bird called the condors are masters of the sky. Once nearly extinct, this incredible flyer is making a comeback. In fact, here’s a whole flock of them right at The Great Escape!

Load solo or shotgun into one of more than two dozen rider capsules in the shape of wild condors. But these aren’t peaceful parakeets. In fact, you can tell by the looks on their faces these birds are primed for intense flight!

Your bird car rises to the top of a central tower as your flock starts to fly in a circular formation. The view of the park is incredible from a whopping 105 feet in the sky, giving you a literal birds’ eye view. These birds are flying faster and faster, cutting through the air. You’ll swing wildly out to the side as your condor banks high on the wind.

Creatures are climbing out of holes near the Condor. If you see one … just pray for it to end quickly.

A few weeks ago a hole was found next to the entrance of Condor. While it isn’t uncommon — given the fact that the park is built on an ancient zombie burial ground — to find holes, this one was a little unusual because it appeared to lead to another dimension.

It is said that every now and then, something scrambles out of this hole and visits us. Huge, slimy tails whip through the night. Sharp points of red-forked fangs flash in the shadows. And, heaven help you, once it clamps onto your leg or creep inside your jacket.

The creature was recently seen by one of our park watchmen, who described it as, “an octopus, a dragon, and a human caricature…a pulpy, tentacled head surmounted a grotesque scaly body with rudimentary wings” before he burst into tears and began talking in gibberish (he said something like “Ph’nglui mglw’nafh Cthulhu R’lyeh wgah’nagl fhtagn” right before he dropped dead. We have no idea what it means).

Over the last couple of weeks, The Great Escape has spent a significant amount of money to try to seal the hole. But the ability of this creature to dig his (or her) way out is staggering.

Guests riding the Condor are encouraged to keep a weather eye on the bird ahead. Anyone who sees something up ahead with a gigantic, unkempt mouth with dozens of sharp pointy teeth should……pray for it to end quickly…
