Funtime introduces its newest Tower thrill ride, the StarFlyer. This new thrill ride combines Chain Flyer swing ride with a 70-meter tower.
The ride begins like a traditional chain flyer spinning around a center axis with passengers in seats hung by chains. The added excitement begins when the spinning swings are hoisted up to the top of a 23-story tower. Passengers fly through the air rotating at 44 mph both forwards and backwards during a cycle. The StarFlyer can be built to accommodate 8 - 36 passengers at once.
The latest installation, a 12-passenger, 70-meter model can be found at Vienna's Prater Park. A review of this tower ride with photos can be found on Ultimate Rollercoaster.com.
