Description And Comments

An indoor, sit-down attraction recounting the entire Cat in the Hat story from beginning to end, in a little more than four minutes. The audio narration is clear and each scene is crammed with the kind of crazy furniture and bizarre housewares found in the book. Of course, mayhem ensues when Cat brings Thing 1 and Thing 2 over to play, but the entire mess is cleaned up just before mom gets home. The ride is straightforward enough - we only wish the ride had more sophisticated animatronics and better effects.

Touring Tips

Fun for all ages. Try to ride early.

Other than loud noises and a vehicle that spins in circles, we think there' s almost nothing here to frighten small children. A father of three from Natick, Massachusetts, disagrees:

The Cat in the Hat ride has quite the fright potential. Besides all the things popping out at you, it whips you around very wildly. My wife took my fairly advanced 3 ½-year-old daughter on the ride, and she was screaming her head off. Nearly two years later, she still reminds me of the scary Cat in the Hat ride (it hasn't affected her love for the books, though!).
