Our client presented us with a family ride that resembled butterflies flying in a circle. The riders are able to control the up and down motion by pushing and pulling on the bar. The wing on top tilts in the direction of the travel. Remembering how kids tend to call them flutterbyes we thought it the perfect name for the ride. In keeping with our mechanical bug theme we perched a giant robotic butterfly on the top of a giant tree. The hollow tree on which the butterfly rests will double as the ride operator's booth. Generous landscaping will of course be a large part of the picture.
