OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla. — The new Winged Warrior started flying at Frontier City on Saturday, May 10, just in time for Mother’s Day weekend. The eight-vehicle Flying Scooters takes the place of the removed drop tower and is located between the Starlight Amphitheater gate and the private catering area, just across from the Nightmare building
General Manager Stephen Ball said the decision to go with Larson was an easy one to make. “Larson is close to us — just down the road from us in neighboring Texas. They are really easy to work with and the install only took about two weeks from the time it arrived on the trailers until it was operational.” Ball added, “this is our first ride with Larson, and I hope there are many more to come.”
Once staples at theme parks from the mid-1930s through the 1950s, Larson International revived the Flying Scooters in early 2000s using an original from Bisch Rocco as a model, and registered a trademark for the original name. Winged Warrior is one of five new Larson Flying Scooter rides opening in 2014.
