Lakeside Gliders

Have you ever wanted to glide in the open skies like a majestic eagle? Imagine soaring through the air, swooping in and out of clouds. Think it’s impossible? Maybe, but you’ll think again after taking a spin on our memorable Lakeside Gliders ride. After boarding one of the colorful, unique carriages, you’ll start spinning at a high speed, so much so that you’ll start to spin outward and rise above the ground. Once in the air, you take matters into your own hands by operating the carriage’s controls in order to command the glider’s flight. A stationary rear wing and moveable front wing allow you to create your own personal flight experience. Whether you explore the high altitudes, as if soaring through a mountain range, or cruise at a lower elevation, the choice and experience—be it mild or wild—is all up to you.

Maximum weight is 340 lb. per unit.

A shared seatbelt secures each set of riders, fastening across the thighs and pelvis.

The smaller rider must sit on the inside seat.
