    The hardest laughing I've ever done has been on this ride. The barf bags are there for a reason though - like this tip if you didn't puke ;)

    The non-swinging gondolas go much higher.

    Drew H. · January 31, 2010
  • Julia

    If youre in the swinging line, once you get to the bottom of the ramp, you can go either left or right, left is usually way shorter.

    It's the most fun you can have... In wheel form

    Notice Mickey's eyes - they are the pie-eyes of the early Mickey Mouse cartoons.

    The non-swinging gondolas (that go higher) have less wait times than the swinging ones.

    This ride should be called Mickey's Sick Wheel.

    I about tossed my nachos. My friend is a swinger and I now have sea legs, haha!

  • Gina B.

    Swinging gondola right after dinner probably isn't the best idea

    Gina B. · June 5, 2012
  • Dani G.

    Scary as HELL. I cry everytime, but it's always me pushing to go on... IT'S JUSY TOO MUCH FUN.

    Dani G. · January 15, 2012
  • Chris Paul O.

    If you get motion sickness easily, make sure to go on the non-swinging cars. Vomit!!!

    Chris Paul O. · October 13, 2011
  • Alyssa K.

    The swinging gondolas are much funner.

    Alyssa K. · May 9, 2011
  • Allyson M.

    Dnt do it if u get even the slightest motion sickness

    Allyson M. · April 21, 2011
  • Amanda P.

    The swinging gondolas are great as long as you're not easily nauseated.

    Amanda P. · August 24, 2013
  • Brian F.

    Remain seated, please.

    If you time it correctly you can enjoy "Instant Concert...just add water" a show performed by the fountains hosted by Goofy several times a day.

    Jose C. · June 19, 2012
  • Memo B.

    If you put the heaviest riders at the front seat (looking back), the ride swings much more. If you want to reduce swinging to a minimum, make the heaviest riders sit at the back (looking forward)

    Memo B. · April 11, 2012
  • Dave G.

    One of the CRAZIEST wheels EVER! Go with a swinging gondola... Its awesome...

    Dave G. · January 26, 2012
  • John D.

    Did you go rocking or non-rocking?

    John D. · January 14, 2012
  • Aimee C.

    Swinging gondola is scary! Swings a lot! 

    Aimee C. · January 7, 2012
  • John S.

    Definitely get the swinging one!

    John S. · September 17, 2011
  • Todd H.

    Make sure you get on the swinging cart!

    Todd H. · August 26, 2011
  • Shane B.

    If you want to really rock the sliding gondola, put all the heavier people on one side

    Shane B. · May 9, 2013
  • Matt T.

    Don't ride the swinging cars after eating or riding a lot of other round'n'round rides... Barf bags for a reason!

    Matt T. · October 5, 2012
  • Angie V.

    The swinging wheels are so much fun! My 3 year old loves it!!

    Angie V. · June 6, 2012
  • Alexandria N.

    Alexandria N. · May 26, 2012
  • Gestina

    Make sure to sit in a swinging cage! The stationary ones are no fun! =D

  • Justin Y.

    The prerecorded welcoming voice sounds suspiciously like Dracula.

    Justin Y. · January 29, 2012
  • Jim E.

    There are 24 cars total. Three load at one time: 2 swinging around 1 non swinging. The non swinging cars reach the highest heights. Watch for World of Color setups in the Lagoon.

    Jim E. · January 3, 2012
  • MissMarilyn D.

    this is one of the most boring rides unless you sit on the swinging ones and you get a birds eye view of the parks really pretty at night

    MissMarilyn D. · December 4, 2011
  • Munch74

    The swinging one was scurry, lol, no seat belts to keep you in place, tried squeezing my fingers in the tiny holes, had to go around twice for the swing to slow down

    Munch74 · October 30, 2011
  • Helen H.

    The swinging one is the best but this ride sucks when it's raining.

    Helen H. · February 10, 2011
  • Richard T.

    This is the only ferris wheel you may scream on

    Richard T. · November 13, 2013
  • Cherokee H.

    The swinging ones give that exhilarating feeling!

    Cherokee H. · October 21, 2013
  • Cherokee H.

    Great view!

    Cherokee H. · October 21, 2013
  • Shaila M.

    The swinging is super intense. My whole group in the car was holding on for dear life lol.

    Shaila M. · September 24, 2013

    If you hate pirate ship rides you'll hate the swinging gondola!

    kiptrip · July 24, 2013
  • Kevin M.

    Go in a swinging car. Best decision you could make at the park.

    Kevin M. · June 15, 2013
  • Lisa R.

    If you are prone to motion sickness, select the line to the left for the non sliding ride buckets.

    Lisa R. · April 22, 2013
  • Raquel P.

    Grab a churro for the long wait. There is always a wait for the swinging gondola.

    Raquel P. · February 8, 2013
  • Linda C.

    The ride is fun. Get on the steady gondolas if the line is long for the swinging ones.

    Linda C. · October 20, 2012
  • Walter

    It's fun for two seconds. They are unloading and loading people the whole two times you go around. Waist of time.

    Walter · August 15, 2012
  • Ramiro R.

    Grab some popcorn for the wait.

    Ramiro R. · May 27, 2012
  • Helen E.

    Just because there's no seatbelts doesn't mean it's not freaky!
