Take Thrills to New Heights!

The Pixar Pal-A-Round swinging gondolas offer a ride on the wild side. While you spin round and round—up to 150 feet in the air—your car sways and glides on interior rails, for a sometimes-startling, but always exhilarating, sensation.

“Hang” out with 24 Pixar Pals
Each of the gondolas—swinging and non-swinging—is delightfully decorated with the image of a different Disney•Pixar movie character. As you board and as you ride, watch for favorites like Woody, Buzz, Dory, Nemo, Mr. Incredible, Joy, Sadness, Lightning McQueen and more.

A Unique Attraction

Pixar Pal-A-Round is one of only 2 Ferris wheels in the United States that combine fixed and sliding gondolas. The other is the original—the Wonder Wheel at New York’s Coney Island.

Prefer a Gentler Ride?

Enjoy the same breathtaking views on a steadier, fixed gondola. Look for the “Non-Swinging” queue when you arrive.
