Larson International, Inc. also has the classic Flying Rides including the Jumping Jumbos, Bumble Bee Bop and Star Command. Each themed ride is designed to attract children but also accommodate adult riders. Guests load in one of the eight vehicles and as the ride begins rotating each vehicle may be propelled up or down with the push or pull of a control bar. This gives the guest the option to ride up in the air or down closer to the ground or both.
With both park and portable models of each ride available, these classic fun rides will please even in the smallest of spaces.

Each of the eight elephants has a bench seat that holds three children or one adult and one child. A small perimeter makes it a very versatile ride in terms of where it can be placed. It will fit a variety of locations, and with eight vehicles, it also offers a high hourly passenger capacity.

Passengers can control their flight using a control bar, which moves their spaceship from eight inches above the ground to a maximum height of eight feet. The bench seats in each space ship are designed to accommodate three children or one adult and one child.
