Two sentence insider summary
Universal Orlando’s answer to Dumbo at Magic Kingdom, this ride lifts guests up and down and circles them ’round. Be careful: this ride has a few surprises, and if you are not paying attention you will get wet!
One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish at Universal’s Islands of Adventure.
1 out of 5. There is a little height involved.
High visibility and a catchy tune attract the guests, increasing wait times to 30 minutes or more in the busy seasons.
What you wish you know before you experienced it
If you follow the instructions in the song (go up and down when you’re told), you won’t get wet. But that’s no fun, right?

For the average parkgoer, this might be skipped unless small children are involved. Don't let that happen! While yes, this is just like Dumbo for all you Magic Kingdom people, it takes it to the next level for the slightly older kids with the challenge to not get wet. It's fun and I actually got pretty wet when I was on this ride (unintentionally). It is very basic so don't expect much, but it is tons of fun!
My four-year-old and I had so much fun on this ride. It is a simple concept, ride in a circle and control whether your fish goes up or down. Water shoots in a stream from fish on the periphery. My son thought it was the bee's knees getting wet while on the ride, but quickly changed his tune once we got off the ride and were soaked. So bring a change of clothes at least for little ones, ya dig?
My husband and I wanted to make sure to ride all the rides in the parks. We are in our late 20's with no kids and decided to get on One fish, Two fish...It was extremely cute. We didn't care if we were the only adults on the ride at the time. We would totally ride it again just because you pretty much get drenched whether you follow the rhyme or not.
We've been visiting Universal on and off since my son was 4. For those who think of that "other park" for little kids, they are missing some treats. The Seussland at IOA and the area at USO which includes "E.T.", Barney, and the ever fun Curious George area don't know what they are missing.
My son adored the whole Seuss area at IOA, but One Fish, Two Fish was by far his favorite. You can control your "fish" -- taking it up or down as you fly. There are water spouts which you can try to avoid or aim for, depending on your preference. The preference of a boy is to hit as many as possible!
There is music which livens up the mood, too. The ride is a lot of fun, whatever your age -- but we built up a lot of happy memories on that ride and it remains one of my favorites for the little ones. We preferred it to the other rides in Seussland -- and that is saying something as this is a colorful, fun filled area of IOA.
Think of the Dumbo ride at that other park... same concept, but MUCH beter.
Riders are counted and sent to the waiting platform (don't worry when you see parties of three seeming to cut the line in front of you- they're just going to the three fish cars!)
You get to choose your fish, and control it's up and down movements. Now the fun part... LISTEN to the rhyme and the directions in the song... it's quite adorable. It will say things like "Red fish down" and if you're in a red fish, you must go down unless you want to get squirted by a fish. SO FUN!!
LOVED the interactive element to this ride.. much more fun than simply up and down!
