Cyclone Sam’s is a themed dark ride. There is a pre-ride waiting area with a couple of TV monitors to set up the experience. The attraction itself is a standard Chance Morgan Wipeout ride sitting on a black top, surrounded by special effect props and a strobe light or two.

Cyclone Sam’s is a valiant attempt at a themed dark ride, however it fails on so many levels that it is hard to like the attraction. The pre-show waiting area has a couple of monitors that set up the story for the attraction, but the volume is so low and the queue is generally so loud you can't hear anything that is being said. The attraction itself, once you SLOWLY make it in, is nothing more than a standard Wipeout ride on a dodge ball black top, surrounded by special effect props about as good as those found at the local city theater. Oh yeah, it also has a strobe light or two. Having said all that, Cyclone Sam’s is a better attraction than it should be, just because it is in the dark and has a slight theme. It would be nice to see the special effects, queuing area, and ride itself upgraded with a strong attention to the details of the theme. But no matter how well the theme is upgraded, the ride will still be a Wipeout in a barn.
