Approximately 40 entered a big room, with each person having a place to stand against the wall. As the room started to spin at great speeds, passengers were forced against the walls and moved up, so their feet left the ground. It was not a ride that made guests feel particularly dizzy, as once in the room they couldn’t tell that they were spinning.

The attraction opened in 1990 as a replacement for Turbo Star and sat roughly where Oblivion’s station now stands. It closed in 1992 but was not replaced until X Sector opened 6 years later.
