NEWS: Whirl Helicopter Signs Deal with Six Flags

Recommended Posts

Whirl Helicopter has signed a multi-year deal with Six Flags to provide park rides in it's Atlanta, New Jersey and Los Angeles theme parks. The ride, appropriately named "The Dragonfly," will hold 3 persons and start at $25.00 per person.


Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) March 30, 2010 -- Whirl Helicopter has just signed a deal with Six Flags USA to provide helicopter rides in it's Atlanta, New Jersey, and Los Angeles theme parks. The "Dragonfly" makes it's maiden voyage in March with a $30 per person ride. Whirl, an Atlanta Helicopter Tour company, has created this program to be one of the most thrilling rides in all of Six Flags parks.


According to Ken Starnes, CEO of Whirl Helicopter, The Dragonfly is "500 Feet of Fun" and certainly affordable to anyone taking the ride. "We wanted to create a product that appealed to people from 9 months to 99 years old." Given the 48-inch height requirement on most Six Flags rides, the Dragonfly is sure to be a popular attraction for everyone.


Whirl began serving Atlanta as an Atlanta Helicopter Tour business and continues to do helicopter rides at various parks, events, and county fairs. Whirl's stable of tours include the popular Downtown Tour, I Love You Tour (great for engagements or anniversaries), and a Discovery flight where YOU take the controls.


Whirl's helicopter pilots are fully certified with the Federal Aviation Administration and have thousands of hours of flight time. Whirl has a perfect safety record and takes extra measures to create a safe, yet fun environment.

It's interesting that this is coming to Six Flags now, after it's been at some of the Paramount parks for over 10 years already.


Seems like a pretty low price point, should be interesting to see how long the 'flights' are.

vowed not to return to SFMM until we get ... plug n play lol


But they do have plug and play, it's in the locker rental area. Theres a kiosk there where you can charge your phone


I think this will be pretty interesting to watch. I wish it would move a little more than just hover. Maybe if you pay the pilot a little extra he will do a Tower of Terror Demo
