In 2014 the Thai amusement park Camel Republic presents a brand-new adventure by Gerstlauer Amusement Rides. ‘Flying Macaw’ is the name of Asias first Sky Fly. This ride will feature an interactive experience for every rider.
Once the 12 comfortable single-rider gondolas are carried aloft, there is no stopping. The gondola brakes are released and thanks to control wings every rider is able to roll over. Everyone decides whether the ride turns into a hair-raising flight-adventure or ends up to be 'just' a scenic flight. ‘Flying Macaw’ is for everyone! Since the boom is tilted, the riders go up 72 ft (22 m) and come down each revolution. Comfortable shoulder restraints with redundant, hydraulic cylinders keep riders in their seats safely.
Are you ready for take-off? ‘Flying Macaw’ by Gerstlauer is! Get on board.
