Opened in 2003 Xcalibur is a suspended Gondola Swing Ride (pendulum-type) with 360 degree inversions. At its peak your gondola is 113 feet off the ground. Capacity is 64 persons. Relocated from SFGA in 2003.

The line for this ride tends to move very slowly, so ride early or be prepared for a long wait.

I don't normally ride spinners, but I got talked into this ride by a co-worker who will do about anything. As it turns out, I enjoyed the heck out of it and he got nauseated. Go figure! The trick is to keep your head looking straight ahead when you are spinning on the ground at the beginning and the end. Once you get in the air, you can look around and enjoy the sights while you are face the ground at the top of the ride. - Tim Hillman
