    If you like to spin, you will love the Alice in Wonderland inspired Mad Tea Party.

    You sit in oversized teacups and you can spin a lot or a little  - the entire ride spins, but each teacup can spin individually as well. If you have a sensitive tummy or suffer from motion sickness, definitely skip this attraction.

    If you're an Alice in Wonderland fan, she often does character meet and greets at the garden surrounding this attraction as well as the Mad Hatter, Tweedle Dee, Tweedle Dum, etc. The Mad Tea Party is a great backdrop for a souvenir photo.

    This ride is a virtual little kid magnet. They love the spinning motion, especially being able to turn the teacups themselves. Because it's on the slow side to load/unload, long lines are not uncommon. It's best to head here first thing in the morning (and you may want to have breakfast after riding it.)

    Handicapped accessibility: Guests must be able to transfer from their chairs in order to ride.

    Fun Fact:  Look for the dormouse popping out of the teapot in the center of the ride.
