Universal Orlando | Springfield USA
Kang & Kodos’ Twirl ‘n’ Hurl is a Simpson’s themed flying saucer ride controlled by aliens Kang and Kodos. Don’t be off put by the dramatic name of this ride as it is similar to Disney classics such as Dumbo the Flying Elephant and The Magic Carpets of Aladdin.
Earthlings board the ride to discover that they have been tricked by the aliens as part of a plan to attack the town of Springfield. The joystick located inside the saucer can control the height of your “spaceship” which can be used to hone in on your “targets” or the faces of different Simpson’s characters.
