JAYCOPTER RIDE 

The sensations of a real helicopter flight are simulated in this high-flying machine, attached by a long boom to a tall tower. The pilot spins, drops, hovers and reverses flight at the request of his 16 passengers. First developed by Jacopters Ltd. to train helicopter pilots, this electric-powered cab has a ceiling of 100 feet and a circular flight path 125 feet in diameter. For those who want to try their own hand at piloting, there are 22 small models that carry no passengers, operated on the ground by controls like those in the real machine.
* Admission: $1.00 for ride; 25 cents to operate small models.
