Kang and Kodos' Twirl 'n' Hurl Ride Description

Kang and Kodos' Twirl 'n' Hurl is a Simpsons themed aerial carousel. Ride vehicles are shaped like small spaceships and spin merry-go-round style around a central point. The ships have names like Old Ironglorp, Citizen Kang, and HindenBorg. Guests can use a lever to make their individual spaceships rise up as high as ten feet off the ground and back down again. 

The name of this ride is humorously misleading. It doesn't spin nearly fast enough to make you hurl. Top speed is 13 miles per hour, so most people don't need to worry about getting dizzy or losing their lunch. The main appeal of this ride lies in the narration by Kang and Kodos, the pair of recurring alien characters on The Simpsons television show.  You can also hear sound effects from other famous Simpsons characters like Nelson, Homer, Bart, and Willie as you ride.

UO Fan Guide Ride Tip

Kang and Kodos' Twirl 'n' Hurl usually shuts down during Universal's Cinematic Spectacular if the show starts before the park closes. The spinning and the rise and fall of the ride vehicles can be distracting to people who are watching the show. So, don't plan to ride during this timeframe. 

UO Fan Guide Mini Review of Kang and Kodos' Twirl 'n' Hurl

Kang and Kodos' Twirl 'n' Hurl is a pretty straight-forward ride: what you see is what you get. It goes up and down and around. If you're a Simpsons fan, you might enjoy the humorous audio that is incorporated into the attraction, but if you listen hard enough, you can hear all of that without actually waiting in line or boarding the ride.  Wait times are usually pretty short for Kang and Kodos' Twirl 'n' Hurl, so it may be worth hopping on board at least once. If wait times are more than five to ten minutes, come back and try riding it another time. It really isn't worth waiting in line for more than ten minutes for this short two-minute ride.
