Fun for the Kiddies.....But Not Much Else

In an oddly out-of-place feeling area of Disney's Animal Kingdom park, otherwise known as "Hester & Jester's Dino-Rama" there lies a ride unlike any other.....

Ok, I'm kidding. It's a ride that is VERY MUCH like several other rides at Walt Disney World. This ride is called the "TriceraTop Spin", and if you're familiar with the Magic Kingdom's Dumbo ride, then that's all you need to know about what to expect from this ride.

It's your run-of-the-mill kiddie ride that spins around and in your car, the kids have a little joystick they can pull to lift their car slightly higher up in the air as they spin, and after about 1-2 minutes, it all slowly comes back to the ground and that's that.

So if you're at Disney World, and already took your little ones on rides such as Dumbo, Flying Carpets of Agrabah, or the Astro Orbiter (all of which are at the Magic Kingdom), then I suppose if the kiddies loved it.....they'll love the TriceraTop Spin as well.

Ride-wise there's no entertainment value for adults here, BUT.....there can be entertainment value in watching the little ones have fun on a ride meant just for them. To see their little faces light up as they feel they're so high up as they spin around can be all the entertainment a grown-up needs from it.

So, if you have a little could be worth it. If you don't have one with you, then don't waste your time.
