Flying Ace
Keeping the skies safe with Snoopy

Charlie Brown’s trusty best friend Snoopy isn’t your everyday canine. Oh no, not by a longshot. In his dreams, America’s favorite beagle turns into the mighty World War I Flying Ace, soaring the open skies and saving the world from the evil Red Baron in his nighttime battles. But, as any good pilot knows, the Flying Ace can’t save the world alone. He needs your help!

Grab the whole family to come aboard Snoopy’s Sopwith Camel aircraft and join in his mission for justice. Strap on your aviators, take the controls and join Snoopy for a high-flying, memorable adventure on our Flying Ace ride.

You’ll swoop -down to the ground and then, just as quick, soar to new heights. Here’s a fun idea for parents from the World War I Flying Ace Snoopy: Talk with your children about where they would go if they could fly an airplane to anywhere.

Height Requirement: 32 inches minimum, 54 inches maximum

  • Guests board World War I biplanes, and as the ride rotates, the pilot can control a lever that allows them to maneuver the plane up or down.
  • Wait by the exit gate located to the far right of the attraction entrance.  A Guest Service Associate will direct the guest and their escort to a plane.
  • Some riders may require assistance while boarding because the seats are 27” off of the ground.  Riders are seated individually on this attraction.  Therefore each rider must be able to maintain an upright and stable position.  Riders should have at least one lower extremity or lap to accommodate the safety restraints.  The seat is 17” wide and 11” deep. To fully experience the effects of this attraction, riders should be able to operate the flight control stick by pushing or pulling it with their hands.  Riders may need assistance in and out of the planes.
  • Each rider must be able to remain sitting up straight, keeping their head upright, their back and shoulders against the seatback, and their hands, arms, legs, and feet down and inside the ride at all times. Riders must be able to hold on with one functioning arm and brace with one functioning leg. Two functioning arms are sufficient instead of one functioning arm and one functioning leg if the guest is able to form a saddle posture with leg remnants sufficient to brace self upright in the seat. Amputations must be at the knee or below. Riders must have a minimum of two functioning extremities. Riders with a full leg cast can participate, providing the leg cast can fit inside of the ride, and the restraint system can be used as designed. Please review all restrictions listed on the sign at the attraction entrance.  
  • Service animals cannot accompany the guest on this attraction.
  • The flight control sticks for both seats of each plane are connected. Therefore, guests with spinal, joint, or bone conditions should consider riding solo in a plane.
