 Setting another precedent in the outdoor amusement industry, Butler Amusements was the first to premier the exciting Kite Flyer, an unusual amusement ride where, instead of sitting, passengers lie horizontally within the frame of colorful gliders. After riders are buckled in, the ride begins to turn and then rises in the air for a thrilling, soaring sensation before gently gliding back to 'Earth'. Kite Flyer 4 42″ 42″
