A "wild mouse" coaster, like you'd find at a typical carnival or state fair, with the added "twist" of spinning cars.

Cheap. Jerky. Not disney standards 6/10 - Owen Scott

This was a fun twist on a roller coaster. Not on par with Crush's Coaster in Paris, but I wasn't expecting that. - Jeff Krinock

I was put in this ride next to a fat guy who smelled and crushed me during the painful ride. This part of the park is an eye sour and is far below Disney standard. And no, building Fun Spot and call it a theme is insulting to Fun Spot and CHEAP! - O T

Yeah, it is a carnival ride thrown in a Disney park. But so is Space Mountain.. Only difference is that Space Mountain is so dark you have no idea! Sure it's theming is not on Disney par, but it is a good spinning ride. If it were at another park it would get much higher ratings. I still like it! (7/10) - Lexi R

Bland and ugly. Remove this cardboard cut-out carnival ride and all of DinoRama. It's really holding Disney's Animal Kingdom back. - Bryce McGibeny

This whole area should be bulldozed. - Jacob Sundstrom

It's a standard off-the-shelf spinning coaster...But boy is it fun! The drops give air time; spins provide thrill. The theme throughout it not the best, and should be better, but works with the area. It's slightly intense, and whirl of a time! 8/10. - David L.

Wish the seats were better. But other than being smushed in this ride is pretty cool. I like the spinning and the drops are to fun. - Justin Knight

The most painful, uncomfortable, and just not fun attraction at WDW. - Sean Huckel

This ride is only worth it if there is less than a 15 minute wait. The seats aren't super comfortable and the spinning sometimes makes me a little dizzy. However, there are two drops during the ride that are fun. The theme for the ride reminds me of a trip to a state fair, nothing fancy. Not a ride you expect to see at Disneyworld but to be fair, it is an average experience. If there is a long line skip it and head for Everest. - Mickey Black
