Charlie Brown's Wind-up
Home Run in Fun!

Batter up! Charlie Brown’s Wind-Up ride delivers major-league fun to minor-league baseball players, including Charlie himself and the whole PEANUTS™ gang. Kiddos climb on board the free-hanging swings and can pretend they’re in the batter’s box, ready for the pitch. As the swings start turning and lifting high in the air, little batters can send the ball flying to the moon, where they’ll join its path as they fly through the air -- with feet dangling free as a bird.

And just like professional ball players run around the bases, pint-size players will speed around and around in their colorful swings, waving to their adoring fans all the while. What’s more, as riders pick up speed, the swings will tilt, offering a soaring experience the kiddos will never forget. Charlie Brown’s Wind-Up is a classic amusement park ride that’s always a home run in fun.

Height Requirement: between 36” and 54”
