Guests on Swashbuckler, a red round ride that spins guests in circles
 
 

Swashbuckler

Get spun into shape by this giant of gyration!

Now, a lot of people say they like rides that spin. But how brave will they be when staring down the Swashbuckler, the gold standard of global gyration? Do you think you can take it? This legendary red and gold tilt-a-rama is daring you to try.
 
Take your place atop a giant circular disk and get ready to spin. As the big wheel under your feet turns, hold onto the wall behind you. Pretty soon the whole world starts to rotate around you so fast you can’t even move. The fun starts out innocently enough with a gentle spin, but then rotates faster, then even faster. The spinning force will push you to your limit.
 
You’ll be pinned to the side by sheer gravity, like in a giant centrifuge. As the wheel tilts on its axis to 45°, you’ll be spinning wildly out of control, but somehow magically held in your place. The Swashbuckler’s got your back.

Swashbuckler is the premier residence in the park for angry and disillusioned spirits.

Hovering underneath — for reasons nobody can explain — are the ghosts of those who’ve suffered unspeakable endings from all over the world.

These spirits are lonely, frustrated, and bitter about being left behind. Their mission is to bring others into the mud pit of misery they call home.

From above, they reach out. Their ghoulish touch rips an arm from its socket, with an unnatural jerk and unbearable pain. The vehicle twists and careens, and at each rotation riders disappear, until at the end none are left.

What drives these lost and crazed spirits? Perhaps the thrill of new residents makes their horrible world more bearable. Hopefully, we’ll never know, and we’ll do everything in our power to remain ignorant.
