Imagine a ferris wheel that is at and angle and the cars can swing outward. Get that in your mind and you have Paratroopers. A ride that travels at a good speed and is very fun for everyone.
I've been told that this ride used to stand on the South Midway, but was moved when Screamer or Music Express was installed. It has been on the North end for as long as I can remember.
For those of you that love to go to Lagoon in sandals please note that you will not be allowed on this ride. Toes must be protected by your shoes and no amount of reasoning with the operator will allow you to get on if you have open-toed footwear.
