This is one of DLs best flat rides and one of the best round ups Ive ridden. This ride is fun, rerideable, has a large capacity, long ride duration, and is not nauseating.

UFO is easily one of the top flats at Darien Lake, and it could possibly be the best Round-Up ride I have ever ridden. This thing is intense and tremendously fun and thrilling! It looks a little different than the "typical" Round-Up, and to the joy of riders it rides different than the typical one too. If this thing doesnt go totally vertical, then it comes pretty darn close to it, which is way higher than what Ive typically experienced on these types of rides. Add to that a very healthy ride cycle and some excellent spinning (that is also blazingly fast!), and you have a flat ride that is a real winner. I was also very impressed with the forces that UFO had, as I was pinned to the wall as the ride blitzed through its cycle. This flat is loads of fun, very thrilling, and very intense without being nauseating. Overall, just an excellent ride experience. When it comes to flat rides, what more could one ask for?

This was a really good and rare round-up ride. The cycle is quite long and the spinning was excellent and very fast. It also provided some very strong positive Gs, pinning me to the wall. Finally, was very thrilling when it went vertical.

I would argue that the UFO is the worlds greatest round-up ride. Granted, I havent seen them all, but this one is pretty darn impressive, and I imagine hard to beat. For one, the diameter is huge. The largest Ive ever seen. Second, I swear it tilts up to a complete vertical position. A normal round-up might make it to a 45 or 50 degree angle, but this one looked like and felt like it was at 90. The set-up is somewhat unique as well. Instead of a continuous row of backrests to stand against, this one has several separate sections of cages/booths in which to stand. Finally, the duration is nice and long and it never got sickening, just thoroughly exciting. A real winner. Parks should start adding more of these!

Looks like a Round-Up, spins like an Enterprise. If you dont think this ride is exciting enough then try riding it with your arms at your sides instead of grasping onto the bars of the cage in front of you.

UFOs ride thats found in most carnivals or fairs. Its pretty cool. You stand up in a cage-like train while it spins, tilted on its side like a Silver Bullet ride. In fact its the same thing, only you are standing up. Heavy lateral G forces and a moderatly long ride make this one of the best in the park...or at your local fair...

Fact: The name, if im not mistaken, is the "Round-Up". Youve heard of that, havent you?
