A gondola in form of a wide steel wheel moves to the top of a central post while rotating. The plane-shaped cars are suspended to the wheel with steel ropes and pushed outwards while circling around the post. It is similar to the Chairswing and Aileron rides in the way it works.
The cars of Barn Stormer can hold five guests each and resemble propeller planes. As it has 12 cars, the ride capacity is 60.
