Dizzy Flying Chairs Attraction at Tibidabo Amusement Park

Flying Chairs are common attractions in amusement parks or local fairs but I doubt they take you for a spin with such strength and so high as the Chairs at Tibidabo Amusement Park.

Imagine your feet dangerously approaching the surrounding trees and your body on the verge of slipping away headfirst towards Barcelona City at the end of the mountain slope.

More pictures of Tibidabo have been shown before in this photo blog but I don't remember any video: Watch Tibidabo Mix BkR Studio, a compilation of attractions among which you can see the Flying Chairs not only during the day but also at night.


  1. At an old amusement park in my city there was a flying chair ride like this one. I was always afraid to ride it, because I was afraid the swing would break off and I would go flying into the parking lot. However, this does sound like a unique way to view the sights of Barcelona!

    Brilliant shot from underneath, you really get us flying!

  3. It looks like fun....have you tried it? How did you get your avatar to move--that's really cool!

  4. Glad I am on the ground looking up rather than in the chair, swinging around and looking down!

  5. This is what I will never try as i have tried finally a roller coster here in Cologne and I must said it was SCARY!

    Nice photograph. These are fun to ride on but when the cables break they fling riders across the city scape. Not so nice then.

  7. Gorgeous!

    Barcelona is such a gorgeous city. It seems to be committed to be beautiful as well.

    (Except for the drunk college kids that I found all over the squares)

  8. I find this photo absolutely great. The best photo of the day. Really wonderful capture, perfect angle and idea of turning !!!

  9. What a delightful photo, which brings back fond memories for me. I loved the swings, years ago, but never had the pleasure of one like this. fabrizio is right!
