Yo-Yo

Like the fanciful flight of a whirlwind, the Yo-Yo spins riders through the sky, as they sit suspended from the top of the attraction. This popular family ride creates a delightful feeling of freedom, as riders rock in the chair as it swings, hence the name ‘Yo-Yo’.

This family-friendly ride is located in Crossroads, near Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare: 3Z Arena.

Height Requirement: 48” minimum
