Flying Scooters was a Flying Scooters ride built by US manufacturer Bisch Rocco previously located at LeSourdsville Lake Amusement Park in Middletown, Ohio, USA.

History

Flying Scooters was added in 1946.[1]

Components of the ride were destroyed in a 1990 fire.[2] They were replaced and the ride reopened that year.

The ride was sold after the park closed. Some sources claim that it was relocated to Stricker's Grove, but the Flying Scooters ride at that park was in operation before the ride closed at LeSourdsville Lake. It also uses different ride vehicles and a different frame than the one found at LeSourdsville Lake. Other sources claim that the ride was still at the park, in storage, as of 2006.[3] In 2007, the ride was relocated to Fun Spot Park in Angola, Indiana, USA, and used for spare parts on their existing Flying Scooters ride, including the unique fiberglass tubs.[4]
