Are you ready to test your thrill level? Well, then take a spin on Kaleidoscope! This attraction will send guests spinning on a counter clockwise of weightlessness and acceleration against the ride’s main clockwise direction. The colorful lights on this ride at night will mesmerize you as you watch the arms and gondolas spin and move in every direction. Kaleidoscope consists of 3 moving arms each with 7 gondolas that spin and twirl through the sky. Grab your friends and family to experience this whirl wind of a ride. Fun fact: the ride style of this attraction is troika, meaning group of three in Russian. This of course refers to the group of three arms that give this ride an aesthetically pleasing look. Although located next to many food stands along the main midway, you may not want to eat before embarking on this ride! Step into Kaleidoscope, hold on tight to your lap bar, and get ready for a thrilling adventure.

Guests must be 50" tall to ride alone OR 42" tall and accompanied by a supervising companion.

Maximum weight - 330 lb. per car
