Soaring high above the Thrill Zone at Wicksteed Park at a startling 45 degrees on the Paratrooper, you can enjoy a comfortable aerial ride offering an alternative style of ride than some of our other higher adrenaline experiences.

The Paratrooper is a classic ride based on a central wheel that houses a number of colourful hanging baskets waiting to take you on a gentle trip to the skies! The wheel spins up and then rises to an angle giving you the feeling like you’re really flying through the air. Paratrooper is one of our popular rides situated near the lake in The Thrill Zone so gorgeous views of Wicksteed Park are guaranteed.

PLEASE NOTE: This ride may be subject to closure in rain, high winds and thunderstorms.
