Intamin Bounty "swinging ship" pendulum ride. There is a 42" minimum to ride alone, but no height minimum if you ride with an adult.

Okay, yeah.. It is just a swinging ship. I thought it was nice to see a park avoid nautical theming on a swinging ship though. The seats with actual lap belts and a bit of padding were better than the norm. Also, the ride ops put a glass of water on the center railing of the ride to show riders how it would not move or fall off while the ship was moving.. Never seen this before! Not sure if it is common, but it did add to the ride. (7/10)

This standard midway ride is supposed to be the "mocking grin" of the Joker, but it looks and feels just like any other Viking ship pendulum ride. Not bad, but not anything special, either.
