I actually found this to be a pretty entertaining little flat ride. It was also quite unique, with the closest comparison I can think of being a himalaya-type ride. There is a giant growling gorilla head in the center, and all of the cars encircle it, held in his gripping hands (dont ask me how a gorilla got about two dozen hands). Anyway, the cars run the circular course at a pretty fast speed, bouncing over little hills the whole time. What makes this different from a himalaya ride is that there are little seat dividers in each car, so the person on the inside cant slide over and smash the person on the outside. The centrifugal forces are still there, though, so once the inside rider slides over and is blocked by the divider, their upper body is left flailing about. Im sure this had to be extremely uncomfortable, but I was in one of the outside seats, and I thought it was hilarious! Take that for trying to squash me! Oddly enough, this was one of the longest waits in line we had all day.

ok, since Im re-doing all the reviews I got bads on, lets just go ahead and re-do this one.

it is an interesting ride in a since, very much like tobaggan rides you see at countless county fairs, except the theming on this thing is a bit better, the king kong style thing in the middle gives the ride personality, unfourtuantly, this cannot save the ride from mediocricy.

my main problem with this ride is that when it spins, your sides are glued to the side of the car, naturally, this is utter freaking pain. So, its really not that bad of a ride, its painful, but it does have some decent theming, overall, just so-so.
