Wild Wings is an extraordinary plane ride with an arm that allows twelve tilting plane seats to glide through the air at a height of up to 22 metres. By being able to control the wings independently the ‘pilots’ can determine whether they wish to roll or flip, and how many times. The roll is an actual aerobatics manoeuvre! Along with its name and theme, the visual draw of the attraction was also revealed: a genuine aerobatics plane.

Ambassador of Wild Wings is the Netherlands’ most famous aerobatics pilot Frank Versteegh. A pilot with over 40 years of aviation experience, Versteegh is a perfectionist filled with passion and devotion.
