Ride Overview

TriceraTop Spin Attraction at Animal Kingdom
TriceraTop Spin Attraction at Animal Kingdom

This ride is reminiscent of Dumbo the Flying Elephant except that it is dinosaur themed. This aerial ride is slow and easy, making it perfect for guests of any age. Although it is a ride that flies high in the sky, this attraction is similar to a carousel. 

Guests will get to ride teal colored triceratops dinosaurs covered in golden stars. There is nothing scary about these dinosaurs, as they all are small and baby like in appearance. 

Since there are two rows, this attraction can fit around 4 to 6 guests per dinosaur, depending on the age and size of the guests. The ride lasts approximately 90 seconds, but it is a great choice for riding again and again due to the short wait. 

While spinning in the air guests can go make their triceratops fly higher or lower using a lever, creating their own perfect view of DinoLand. The soundtrack to this ride includes fun and upbeat radio hits that encourage smiles and fun dance moves on the ride.
