The Launcher! blasts custom-built, visitor created foam planes across a room with use of variable air pressure.
An adjustable knob on the side of the launching machine allows guests to control the amount of compressed air, from 0 to 60 psi, to launch their aircraft skyward with the simple touch of a button. The tower lights up as the pressure is increased and rapidly falls as the flyer shoots from the nozzle. Build your best flyer, take aim, and launch!
Depending on the body and wing configuration, flights of up to 30 feet can be achieved.
