    The Ferris wheel that moves gives you a rush! I like the slow steady ones, but it's a cool experience

    Confession: I hate scary rides. But I love ferris wheels, which are gentle and not at all frightening. Alas, *this* ride is quite frightening if you choose the swiveling gondola option.

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

    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 ;)

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

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

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

    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)

    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.
