The Sheffield Starflyer took it’s first flight at 11am this morning and Councillor Leigh Bramall was among the first to take to the skies on the city centre’s newest attraction.
Cllr Bramall was accompanied by Radio Sheffield’s Rebecca Kerry for a quick interview, on air – in the air!
The ride, which is the UK’s largest transportable attraction standing at 220ft tall, will give thrill-seekers wide-reaching views across the city.
Crowds have been gathering throughout the day as members of the public plucked up the courage to jump on and take in the heart-pounding excitement and spectacular views.
The ride will be available for 3 months, from 18 March to 5 June and open between 10am to 10pm. Riders must be above 1.2m in height and at least 6 years old and children under 1.4m tall and aged 8 or under must be accompanied by an adult.
Are you brave enough?
