Life-sized DUPLO helicopters that can rise a considerable height and rotate on the spot: an interesting concept for a ride, and it works! Names 'Whirly Birds' for the first 10 years of its life (a much more endearing name and theme in my humble opinion), Chopper Squadron has been in the park since it opened, and is a firm favourite with young children.
What is it?
- A helicopter ride
- Opened March 1996
- 2 guests per chopper
What does it do?
Once firmly locked in, the ride is entirely controlled by you! There are two levers in front of the riders: one makes the chopper move up and down, whilst the other rotates it left and right. The controls are active for around two minutes, after which the choppers return to terra-firma and the saftey bar is released.
- Must be a minimum of 0.9m tall to ride
- Guests under 1.3m tall must be accompanied by an adult
