Flying Scooters was a product previously manufactured by defunct company Bisch Rocco. It consists of a main metal frame that spins on an axis with individual cars attached by cable to the main frame. These cars are able to change their trajectory via a large rudder that the rider manually operates. The ride vehicles have had a few different iterations and ultimately ended on the most well known Streamline versions.
The portable version of the attraction was slightly smaller and included 8 ride vehicles accommodating two passengers each for a total of 16 riders per cycle.
The stationary version of the attraction was larger and included 10 ride vehicles accommodating two passengers each for a total of 20 riders per cycle.

Larson International acquired the designs and patents of Bisch Rocco. Since then they have created their own improved iteration of this classic ride (still maintaining the same name) that should not be confused with this particular form.
