The ride is easily accessible staircase to the Launch Platform.

When the operator rotates the Launch Barrel into position the rider is then able to take the leap of faith.

The world's only aerobatic airline, The Blades will bring their spectacular daredevil display to the skies above the grounds of Heveningham Hall this summer.
The Blades are a leading display team of former Red Arrows pilots renowned worldwide for flying precision close formation aerobatics to the highest level, within a dynamic and cutting edge display.
Aerobatic stunts flown just feet apart with combined speeds of 400 mph which not only demonstrates the great skills of the pilots, but also shows the incredible versatility of the Extra 300 aircraft. From high rising looping manoeuvres and dynamic 10g formation breaks, followed by extreme gravity defying solo 'gyroscopic' aerobatics, synchronsed rolls, twists, double-tumbles and knife-edge spins to name but a few of the manoeuvres not to be missed!
