This classic contraption never fails to deliver the goods. Whether it’s your first time or you’re an old pro, Sidewinder is a scrambler guaranteed to get the job done. First this classic scramble ride will spin you round and round, and then it’ll put a spin on the spin!

You will become a human rotation station when you slide into one of 12 sleek silver pods, all connected in groups of four to a center rotating arm. When that arm starts to spin, the fun begins!

Once you’re turning around the center, each cluster then pivots on its own axis, creating a spin within a spin that will have you plastered to the edge of your chair. Just be prepared for an extreme case of the dizzies.

The world rushes at you from all directions, zooming forward while you contort around the center in a whirlwind of heavy duty swerves. In fact, just watching this wiggly ride will make you wobbly. 

This snaky spellbinder makes a great meet-up spot while some of the more insane daredevils in your crew attempt to ride Titan next door. Tell them you feel more comfortable with thrills that stay closer to the ground. Just don’t expect to be able to walk in a straight line for a little while.
