Primeval Whirl, Disney's Animal Kingdom

Described as a "spinning coaster," this ride resembles a Tilt-A-Whirl on a rail. Its location in Chester & Hester's Dino-Rama -- sort of the Gatlinburg of Animal Kingdom -- maintains its carnival-ride vibe. The hills aren't substantial, but in conjunction with the round-and-round-and-round rotation of each car, equilibrium becomes tough to maintain. For more fun, lean into the direction of the spinning.
