Attraction Overview

Silly Symphony Swings - Full Swing

Silly Symphony Swings is a wave swinger attraction that is themed after the 1935 Walt Disney’s Silly Symphony series cartoon “The Band Concert.” Mickey Mouse, in this animated short, tries to conduct a public band concert, but things go awry when Donald Duck disrupts the performance with his rendition of “Turkey in the Straw.”

Just as in the cartoon, riders on Silly Symphony Swings are swept into a whirlwind of fun. Each guest sits in a chair suspended by chains from a large canopy, which begins to rotate. As speed picks up, the chairs swing out, giving riders the sensation of flying around in circles.

Designed for both kids and adults, the ride offers not only an exciting experience but also provides stunning panoramic views of the park. It’s a gentle thrill ride that combines the nostalgia of classic carnival rides with the charm of Disney animation.
