Description And Comments

Woody’s Nuthouse Coaster is a short, relatively low roller coaster designed to introduce small children to this kind of amusement park ride. In terms of theme, size, and scariness, Nuthouse Coaster is virtually identical to the Magic Kingdom’s Barnstormer coaster. The Nuthouse Coaster is small enough for kids to enjoy but sturdy enough for adults, though its moderate speed might unnerve some smaller children (the minimum height to ride is 36 inches).

The entire ride lasts about a minute, and at least 20 of those 60 seconds is spent cranking the train up the first (and only) lift hill. There are several tight turns, but the ride doesn’t go upside down or even come close.

Touring Tips

Visit after you've experienced all the major attractions.

If your young child has never before experienced a roller coaster, this would be an appropriate first attempt. The entire attraction is visible from the walkway around it, so your child should be able to see exactly what the ride entails before boarding. It’s worth spending a few minutes with your child watching the trains go by, and observing the reactions of the kids coming off the ride.
