Soar to new heights in fun and excitement!

This is one of the dazzling carnival attractions that have thrilled families for generations. As the Paratrooper reaches a top speed of 12rpm, riders are suspended in mid-air in a whirling fury of excitement. Soon the entire assembly rises a full 20 degrees, giving passengers the sensation of being flung high into the air, and then just as quickly, swings them back to earth. Spectacular in appearance, with a legendary fairground action - buckle-up and hold on tight - you are riding the Paratrooper.

The Paratrooper Ride is available for hire throughout Brisbane, Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast, Toowoomba, and Northern Rivers NSW. Contact Jubilee Entertainment for a quote on the Paratrooper Ride today.
