Take a Spin on the New Chair-O-Planes Ride at Fort Edmonton Park

August 12, 2014
by Fort Edmonton Park

After three years of hard work, Fort Edmonton Park is ready to unveil the Chair-O-Planes ride. This early 20th century thrill ride emulates the experience of open cockpit flying. 

An original Chair-O-Planes ride was donated to the Fort Edmonton Foundation. A brand new ride was then created through the leadership and hard work of over 41 volunteers including professional engineers, carpenters and master artists who have contributed over 8,000 hours and have brought this ride to life.

The Park would like to extend a special thanks to two key contributors: NAIT students and instructors from the electrical program and ATCO Electric. Both parties contributed a large amount of time and expertise to the restoration.

This ride will leave children and adults feeling like they are flying!
