TriceraTop Spin is located in DinoLand U.S.A. and is disapointingly, yet another 'off the shelf' attraction with minimal theaming. It's effectively another Dumbo the Flying Elephant, or Magic Carpets of Aladdin ride. This time the ride cars are Triceratops Dinosaurs, in a rather strange pale green color. 

The ride cars each seat four people, and you spin around a giant top where a dinosaur pops up and down. The ride vehicle can be moved up and down using controls in the front two seats.

The attraction isnt really anything to be amazed about. Much like the rest of Chester and Hester's DinoRama, it all feels very cheap and temporary. Wait times average between 10 and 20 minutes. While little kids may like it, adults will probably fall asleep!
