The Cat in the Hat

The Cat in the Hat

An Attraction in Islands of Adventure

Last updated: February 28, 2024

At a Glance

Universal's answer to Disney's vintage Fantasyland dark rides, this indoor, sit-down attraction recounts the entire Cat in the Hat story from beginning to end, in a little more than four minutes. Guests ride on “couches” through 18 different sets inhabited by animatronic Seuss characters. Of course, mayhem ensues when Cat brings Thing 1 and Thing 2 over to play, as the beleaguered goldfish who tries to maintain order in the midst of bedlam, but the entire mess is cleaned up just before mom gets home.

The audio narration is clear and each scene is crammed with the kind of crazy furniture and bizarre housewares found in the book. The ride is straightforward enough, but we wish the ride had more sophisticated animatronics and better effects.

This is fun for all ages. Try to ride early, or late in the day after families with young children have started to depart.

Since the vehicles now barely spin, we think there's almost nothing here to frighten small children beyond some loud noises. A father of three from Natick, Massachusetts, disagrees:

The Cat in the Hat ride has quite the fright potential... 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!).
