Condor (formerly El Condor) is a steel suspended roller coaster located at Walibi Holland in the Netherlands. The ride opened in 1994 as the first of many Suspended Looping Coasters (SLC) manufactured by Dutch company Vekoma.[1]

In 2014 the ride track was repainted orange, track correction was done and the name was changed to Condor instead of “El Condor”. The old name still persists on some in-park signage.

For the 2021 season, Condor received 2 new trains from Vekoma with the improved vest restraints to improve comfort. The ride’s location, “Exotic” also gained a makeover.
