Wheelchair Accessibility of TriceraTop Spin

We’re taking a look at the wheelchair accessibility of TriceraTop Spin at Disney’s Animal Kingdom. This spinner, similar to Dumbo, is surprisingly easy to ride. It’s worth a trip over to DinoLand U.S.A.

DinoLand U.S.A

We don’t spend a whole lot of time in DinoLand at Disney’s Animal Kingdom. I love the park and the theme of the land is quirky cool but there’s not really a lot there for us to do. Both DINOSAUR and Primeval Whirl are not easy for me to ride (which is why those posts haven’t been updated since 2012) so we tend to skip the land all together. But since we’ve been spending a lot more time in the park we decided to give TriceraTop Spin a try.

The Basics

Location: DinoLand U.S.A. at Disney’s Animal Kingdom
Height Requirement: Guests can be any height
Accessibility: Must transfer from an ECV to a standard wheelchair.
FastPass+: Not available
Similar Attractions: Dumbo the Flying Elephant and Magic Carpets of Aladdin
Who Should Ride: Anyone! It’s fun for kids and since it’s accessible we consider it a must do. The ride isn’t scary unless you are afraid of heights.

The queue is very basic and easy to get through. Since this attraction doesn’t offer a FastPass I would try to visit early in the morning or later in the day. It’s fun and easy to ride but not worth waiting in a long line to experience.

Ride Vehicle

The standard ride vehicle has two rows while allows up to four people to ride together. There are two joysticks that will control your dino. If you are in the back row you can control how high or low you will fly. If you sit in the front you can tip the dino forward or backwards.

One of the dinos allows wheelchair users to ride without transferring. Cast Members remove the front seat and a ramp allows you to roll right in. Make sure to put on your brakes. The floor is sloped a little and there aren’t any tie downs just a seat belt.

The wheelchair accessibility of TriceraTop Spin was much better than we expected. While it’s not the most exciting ride, it is easy for wheelchair users to experience. If the line isn’t long and you are looking for something to do while you wait for Rivers of Light, give TriceraTop Spin a whirl.

    Do you know if power chair users have to transfer? I’ve been on many rides that say ECV users have to transfer to a standard wheelchair, but they let me take my power chair.
    Thanks, I’m enjoying your blog.

      I am not 100% sure but they probably will. I will see if I can find a definite answer for you. I’m glad you are enjoying the blog!

      Can someone sit beside you if you take chair on?
