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 Vekoma Suspended Looping Roller Coasters (SLC).[1]

On 20 August 2011, due to a mechanical issue, a train got stuck on the lifthill. Passengers were evacuated after 40 minutes.

In 2014 the ride track was repainted orange.
