The first flight adventure

Great Airplane Ride

The Great Airplane Ride is a perfect family ride for parents and their little ones. Children can test their abilities as pilots and navigate their airplanes up and down. Benefiting from the easy controls, they can enjoy their first flight adventure. The mechanical construction and the electrical controls are simple and robust, providing easy operation as well as a low maintenance. The ride has a small footprint but still a considerable capacity which makes it a perfect addition to every park.

The Great Airplane Ride has space for 16 passengers separated on eight gondolas with two persons each. Each gondola is secured by one common lap bar with one hydraulic storage cylinder. The airplanes can reach a height of up to 2.5 m / 8.2 ft. and a speed of max. 8 rotations per minute. The ride is driven by one electric motor which provides the rotational movement whereas hydraulic cylinders are responsible for lifting and lowering the gondola arms.

Of course, the design of the ride isn’t restricted to only airplanes. Many other themes can be realized by us according to the customer’s individual wishes. Altogether, the Great Airplane Ride is a perfect match for every park.
