The Magic Carpets of Aladin is based on the 1992 Disney feature film, Aladdin. It is very similar to the Dumbo the Flying Elephant ride found in Fantasyland. Riders in the front row control how high their magic carpet flies, while the riders in the back seat can control the pitch of the carpet. There are 16 carpets surrounding the giant Genie lamp in the middle. Each carpet can take 4 people.
At the ride entrance sign you'll notice a gold camel. This squirts water at unsuspecting guests as they walk past the ride. There are also a number of spitting camels pointing into the ride. Riders can attempt to dodge the water by moving their carpet up and down.
