An indoor "dark" ride that recites Dr. Seuss's classic story. You'll ride on a (sometimes) spinning couch as you watch "Sally and I" deal with their feline visitor, and his Thing 1 and Thing 2. But will they clean up this mess before Mother gets home?

I love this ride and make sure to get a ride or two in when I visit IOA but it is definitely dated. Fun dark ride but could use an update. 7/10 - Brendan Sutton

A "diet" Fantasyland ride that at least tries to be special. - Christopher Sturniolo

Some of the animatronics could use an update, but it's an overall fun children's book experience if you don't mind the spinning. 7/10 - Jonathan Katz

It's a nice little dark ride for the kids and the adults who read the Cat in the Hat to them, or just want to get off of their feet for a minute. 7/10. - Quentin Scruggs

A nice, rather lengthy dark ride. The book provides interesting source material for this ride and the sets are nicely done although some have started to look aged a bit. The spinning of the ride vehicles also adds a fun element to the attraction. It's a good ride for everyone in the family and worth anybodys attention. - Manny Barron

This is a fun ride but the spinning, although turned down a notch or 2, is still a bit much for me. - O T

very good dark ride, it's a kiddie ride but way better than the average ones, it's spins quite a lot, so beware if you sensitive to that. other than that just pure fun - David Shaul

I really like this ride. It's nice to have a Fantasyland style dark-ride at Islands of Adventure. But... It has a twist! (no pun intended) - Bryce McGibeny

A great Fantasyland-type dark ride, and one that's as much fun for the older crowd as it is for the young ones. - Sean Huckel

It's a lot of fun, even for adults. - Rob Pastor
