Hark back to the birth of flight with a ride with the barnstormers...
|Theme Park||Adventure Island|
|Park Area||West Side|
|Max Speed||24 mph|
Themed as an old-fashioned biplane flight, Barnstormer is one of Adventure Island's family friendly rollercoasters.
The ride is a smaller version of a Zierer Tivoli coaster than Green Scream, with its ten row train being half the length of the larger rollercoaster on the other side of the park.
At the front of Barnstormer's train is a fibreglass pilot and aeroplane propellor, while a large dog takes up the navigator position at the rear.
Barnstormer is definitely family friendly, but is a fantastic fun ride and features a surprisingly good helix element that the train really flies through.
