Dr. Seuss is one of the greatest authors ever and this ride captures the whimsical nature of his books. Carousels are pretty standard and this one doesn't differ in the basis of the ride. The major change is that instead of riding horses, you are riding every possible creature imaginable from his books! There are elephant-like creatures, dog-like creatures, fish-like creatures, and a ton more. It's good, clean, fun for the whole family!

Fun Twist on Merry-Go-Round

My husband and I went to Universal on our honeymoon and Seuss Landing was my favorite island. This ride is your basic merry-go-round but it uses Seuss characters instead of animals. That added effect makes this ride more enjoyable than your normal merry-go-round. It is definitely not the most exciting ride in the park, but if the line is short (it seemed to be most of the time we were there, even on Christmas eve when the park was REALLY busy) and you enjoy Seuss stories this ride is one you should experience at least once!

Oh what great things to see, than a Seuss carousel ride for you and me! The creatures are hopping up this way and that while Mommies and Daddies hold on to their hats. The children squeal happily, hap hap hap happy, the creatures colors and styles are quite merrily snappy! The poles wind crookedly to their Seussical tunes, as straight lines are not allowed when you ride with Dr. Seuss!

This is the most charming carousel I've ever seen, anywhere! Set in this amazing land where everything is brighter-than-life you choose a mythical creature to ride. The mythical animals are whimsical and charming and the ride moves quickly enough that the queue never seems to linger for more than a few minutes. This is no ordinary merry-go-round, so take the time to ride and to look all around- note "who" is on top of the building!!
