Animal Kingdom's version of Dumbo, with the addition of tilt control (like Magic Carpets of Aladdin).
Like the other hub-and-spoke rides in Disney parks, this is very slow loading, requiring the entire ride to be stopped and emptied before the next round of guests can board.
TriceraTop Spin opened on November 1, 2001, five months before the "official" grand opening of Chester & Hester's Dino-Rama.
This attraction is not materially different from the Magic Carpets at the Magic Kingdom, except you won't get sprayed by a camel here. Some of the mechanical effects on the hub are interesting to watch the first time, but after that this is just another carnival ride, meaning young kids will want to ride it. Fortunately, the lines for this attraction are rarely long, except on the busiest days in mid-afternoon, and the ride itself is short. The narration (provided by Chester & Hester, the proprietors of Dino-Rama) becomes annoying pretty much as soon as it starts.
There's not a whole lot here to walk through, as you can imagine. You enter the ride vehicle, then the ride starts spinning.
Vertical control is in the rear; raising the lever makes the triceratops go higher, lowering it makes you descend.
Tilt control in in the front seat. Raising the lever tilts you forward, lowering it tilts you backwards.
During the ride, baby dinosaurs pop out of hatches along the top of the hub, while flaming meteors zoom against the motion of the ride.
That's about it. The ride lasts about a minute and a half.
