One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish Review

*Insert funny and witty subtitle about a Dr.Seuss story here*

Did you know that this ride is based on a children’s book from 1960 written by Dr.Seuss? Well, now you know! I don't think the book is about giant vehicles shaped like fishes where you spin around in an aerial carousel, but I am sure it’s still an enjoyable storyline. 

This ride, which I have no idea how to make the title shorter, is very similar to other aerial carousels you can find across Universal Orlando and Walt Disney World. I am talking about The Magic Carpets of Aladdin and Dumbo the Flying Elephant in Magic Kingdom, Triceratop Spin in Animal Kingdom and also Kang and Kodos Twirl n Hurl in Universal Studios. You enter a vehicle for two guests and then it’s time to slowly spin around and enjoy the view. Simple and effective.

The Good

Almost every aerial carousel in Florida has some sort of gimmick which makes them a bit different from each other. Dumbo the Flying Elephant has a great playground area in the queue, while Astral Orbiter is taller and slightly faster than all the others. Dr.Seuss didn’t want to miss the opportunity to have their very own spin (see what I did there?) on this type of ride, so he also brought a new and fun gimmick for families.

This is, in fact, a water ride! Well, kinda. You can move your vehicle up or down, and you use the controls to dodge sprays of water that are triggered by the center statues. There is always a song playing (which is also based on the One Fish, Two Fish book), and you need to press up and down in harmony with the song to dodge the water. Or, you know, don’t and get slightly soaked. That’s why a lot of younglings come to Islands of Adventure, after all! They actually prefer to go against the song and welcome the sprays of water with open arms.

Other than that, this is a very standard ride that isn’t trying to be a blockbuster or anything close to that. It’s colorful and charming, and gives you a nice view of Seuss Landing while you are flying above ground. The short queue times also contribute to this being a good choice for families, especially those with young kids.

Will Kids enjoy it?

Toddlers and young children will find reasons to love this ride. It’s charming, pretty, and there is water being sprayed on you from time to time. That always guarantees some laughs, right? This is also a typical theme park attraction found in both Universal and Disney, so chances are you already know whether your family and friends will enjoy it.
