Ignorance is Bliss on this Utterly Unpredictable Up-Ender.

Climb onto this classic, a seated top-spinner carved with a sci-fi tiki theme. Who knows what colossal creature of the jungle these ancient markings pay tribute to? With a little bit of Voodoo, you just might find out.

Dozens of riders pile on to a giant gondola platform of seats, mounted between two enormous, powerful arms. Arms are for lifting, and that’s exactly what these are gonna do for you, hauling the entire platform and everyone on it into the air. Just a warning, the platform you’re all sitting on is attached to the lifts with rotating hinges, and they pivot at will. When the momentum demands it, prepare to hinge forward, down, and around. Gravity is in charge of this ride experience, for only gravity will determine when you stay upright, and when you flip a complete 360!

Round and round the arms spin the gondola, and then without warning, whoosh, you’re spun like a pendulum. Spin backwards and forward, suddenly and without warning. The flips are utterly unpredictable and no two rides are ever the same. Because nobody knows when the seats are going to fly into their next 360 flip, just waiting for the next spin is the most nerve-wracking part—or the best part, depending on how you look at it.

Big crowds are known to form at Voodoo’s base for the ultimate spectator sport, waiting and cheering for those 360s. The anticipation makes for quite a show, unless you’re brave enough to ride—and then you are the show!
