Kill, Marry, Refurb: Disney World Spinner Rides

I'm joining the magnificent Mouse on the Mind for the Kill/Marry/Refurb blog hop!  This week's theme is Spinner Rides. Does anyone else hear the word "spinner" and think of that Entourage episode where the short guy dates the model?  No?  Just me?  Okay then.  I promise I'm not an Entourage-fan.  We all lived in 2006 once, you know?

Anyway, I digress.  Spinner rides.  This is going to be quick and dirty.


Triceratops Spin.  Does anyone care about this ride?  It's not like DAK needs a people-eater.  Let the kiddies hop on Primeval Whirl.  Their youthful joints can take the jostling.  Kids are resilient.

Kill [not a typo]:

Astro Orbiter.  It's as boring as your usual spinner ride, but with the added bonus of being terrifyingly high off the ground.  I do not trust centripetal force THAT much.  Okay fine, since the motion and aesthetic of the apparatus contributes to the kinetic energy of Tomorrowland (and lord knows Tomorrowland needs all the help it can get), you can keep the spinning apparatus solely for show.  See how nice I'm being?

Kill [still not a typo]:

Magic Carpets of Aladdin.  Thanks to THIS addition, Adventureland now closely resembles Times Square in terms of crowd flow and traffic.  Can we just not?  

Date Casually and Remain Friends After:

Dumbo.  It's a classic.  The ride structure is beautiful.  It keeps the kiddies and annoying parents away from me.  We'll be facebook friends who meet up for drinks occasionally and laugh about how we dated that one time.

Now hop on to the next stops!
