We can’t wait to see what’s next!”        

Hannes Lackner, Funtime’s head engineer, said that working with the Six Flags team was a great experience.  “We brought in some of our team members and they worked with park staff and local contractors.  The ride was up and running before their popular Easter season and has been a great hit with guests.”

The facts:

•    Height: 74 m/242 ft
•    Speed: 64 kmh/40 mph
•    Instant Capacity: 32
•    Colors: Red, Silver and Blue 
•    Lighting: LED spotlights

With thirty three LED spotlights lighting up the tower at night, the 32-seat StarFlyer makes for an arresting spectacle in the night sky and is viewable from miles away. 32 flashing LEDs installed under the seats further illuminate the experience, creating an extraordinay display, reminsicent of a descending UFO.
