  • Tallest Attraction in UK.This turquoise and white ride towers an enormous 70m into the air and is the tallest mobile ride ever to feature in the UK and Europe. It was a huge success at the Southbank Centre where it made its debut in the summer 2012.
  • Media and Press.The Starflyer base occupies a modest 19m by 19m footprint and has 12 double seat swings accommodating 24 passengers in total.
    The Starflyer has attracted considerable media interest since its recent debut and has become one of the most photographed rides of recent years.
    The attraction is transported on five trailers and requires a crane to assist in the build.
  • Setting up the Starflyer.The ride requires 60 cubic metres of water as weight ballast.
    There are no flashing or glaring lights on this ride.
    The Starflyer has a series of static LED illuminated uplighters and
    illuminated star.
