Woodstock Whirlybirds
Not Your Typical Bird Nest!

This big world has all types of bird nests. Nests that float on water, nests that are burrowed deep in the ground, and nests that rest high up on cliffs or in trees. But none of them can compare to a particular type of zany nest that spins around and around in a circle until you can barely see straight. That’s exactly what all our feathered friends get with Woodstock Whirlybirds, a classic teacup ride.

Grab everyone in the family and hop into your own little nest built by Snoopy’s best bud Woodstock himself. Take hold of the rotating wheel and spin as fast or slow as you want; that determines just how mild or wild your ride is. While typical nests might be meant to nurture the young with food and shelter, the nests of Woodstock’s Whirlybirds are meant to nurture the young and young at heart with pure fun.

Height Requirement: 36” or accompanied by a supervising companion. Hand-held infants are not permitted.
