It's a Trbant-style ride like the old wobble wheel, but inside a building with fog and trippy lighting effects.

It's pretty cool. It's a face to face trabant inside a building and it makes you seem as if your picked up in a tornado with objects and cows flying around you.

Chuck, who wanted to ride the joker at SFNE which was simular but wasn't willing to sit there for 45 minutes till they filled the whole ride up and left after about 15 minutes of saying, When they gonna start the ride?

Cyclone Sam's is an indoor "Wipeout" and one of my favorite flat rides in the park. There's something about being on a ride indoors, mostly dark, with lots of light/sound effects that make the ride experience much better had it been out in the open. It's a truely wild and disorienting ride.

I don't know how fast that ride is actually spinning, but it makes you grab the "Oh Sh*t!" bars.

^Especially when they slow down the "dipping" motion but speed up the spinning. Then at the very end after the wheel is back level with the floor yet spinning extremely fast.

Your senses get so confused on that ride. The first time I rode it, I had no idea what was going on by the end of it. ^The changing of speeds must be a big part of the disorientation. SICK!
