Astro Orbitor

Description from PassPorter's Disneyland Resort and Southern California Guidebook:

Go for a short, fast spin in a cozy, two-seat rocket. You’ll zip around a colorful, futuristic sculpture in which the fanciful planets go into motion with each launch. Think Fantasyland’s Dumbo with small, golden space ships going higher and faster. Pull back on your ship’s stick to “soar” high. Get a great view as your ship whirls. Motion sickness warning! Outdoor, uncovered queue; long waits. Adults must accompany kids. Transfer from wheelchair to ride. Originally the Astro-Jets, which opened in 1956.

Ages: Ages 5 & up
Thrill Factor: Motion sickness, heights

Ride Duration: 1 1/2 min.

It the queue is really short, it's a fun ride. But if there is a long wait you wonder why you waited.

It looks so innocent but if you are prone to motion sickness this is not right for you.

If you have little science fiction fans, you might want to do this one. It was never one of my favorites, although I would ask my dad to take me on it when I was little, but I would skip this and do more interesting rides otherwise.
