Dumbo the Flying Elephant
|At A Glance
||Classic fairground style flying
the Flying Elephant is a traditional fairground style ride, with
a Dumbo theme, in which guests in flying elephant vehicles, rotate
around a central point, rising into the air as they go.
Each of the sixteen baby elephant ride vehicles carries
two guests, and the height at which they fly is controlled by
the vehicles occupants. At the top of the ride, on top of a central
hot air balloon stands not Mickey, but Timothy Mouse, supervising
In most respects Dumbo is identical to the Orbitron
attraction in Discoveryland, although visually Orbitron is definitely
better. Dumbo however, is a well known Disney character, and one
that the kids will prefer.
