Description And Comments

The Twirl 'n' Hurl is primarily eye candy for Springfield U.S.A., USF's Simpsons-themed area. Think of it as Dumbo the Flying Elephant with Bart's sense of humor: Guests ride around in little flying saucers while the alien narrators, Kang and Kodos, hold pictures of Simpson character; make them speak and spin by steering your craft to the proper altitude. All the while, Kang exhorts you (loudly) to destroy Springfield and makes insulting comments about humans. Preschoolers enjoy the ride, while older kids and Simpsons fans crack up over the gags.

Touring Tips

Since Fall 2020 Universal has been operating Twirl 'n' Hurl only on "busy" days like weekends. Note that it may not be open during your visit.

Twirl 'n' Hurl rarely attracts the long lines that similar spinners and Disney do, but (like all rides in this style) it can be very slow loading. If you want to enjoy the jokes without the wait, you can easily hear them all from the sidelines.

If you have folks who are hot to ride, get them on whenever there are 50 or fewer guests in line. Try before 11:00 am. It should take awhile for most guests to arrive in Springfield, U.S.A., especially with Diagon Alley, Transformers, and Despicable Me keeping guests busy elsewhere.

Twirl 'n' Hurl may stop running early on nights when Cinematic Spectacular starts before park closing, so as not to distract from the show.
