Take a flight down Memory Lane with the nostalgic fairground classic, the chair-o-planes, also known as the flying chairs or chair swing ride. 

These magnificent flying chairs were originally invented by Harry Guy Traver in 1904, giving fairgoers a tantalising taste of flight, just months after the Wright brothers first took to the skies.

Perfect For Everyone: The gentle spinning motion and the sensation of flying through the air will keep all of your guests entertained.  

Old-Fashioned Good Looks: If you’re looking to add vintage charm to your event, then the chair-o-planes are perfect for you. They’re just as picturesque as a carousel but offer a bit more speed and sensation. 

Versatile Options for All Ages: We also offer chair-o-planes in a smaller size just for kids. If you’re seeking a bit more adventure, consider our vintage-style wave swinger – a larger chair-o-planes variation that tilts as it spins, providing an extra level of excitement. There’s also our modern star flyer which takes you soaring much higher into the sky, offering your guests breathtaking views of your event. 

Like all of our rides and attractions, the chair-o-planes are supplied with transport, staff, lighting and all necessary equipment and paperwork, making them ideal for:

  • Birthday parties
  • School fetes and functions
  • Christmas fairs
  • Corporate events
  • Festivals
