Instead of individual chairs, you ride in single-file "rocket ships" as you swing around the circle.

Not the most thrilling attraction but it's something different and fun to do while waiting for a fastpass. Great for those of us who are too big for symphony swings. Usually the lines are very short, so I ride it every time I visit the park, but would not wait more than 15 minutes for it. - Erik Avila

It's similar to the Silly Symphony ride but you are in "spaceships" that can seat up to 12 people, two per sections of the "space ship". It won't get you dizzy but it won't thrill you if you are an adult. Best to use this ride for the kids or if you just waisting time until your FastPass time is up. - D.S. Francisco
