Have you ever wanted to know what it was like for Sally and Conrad in the story “The Cat in the Hat”? Well then this is just the ride for you. Entering the attraction through a 30-foot Cat Hat, guests will appear immediately the front yard of the house. Look carefully around as you can read quotes from the book as they appear and disappear from the walls of the queue line. As guests walk on to the front porch and into the house, they have now entered the Cat in the Hat story.

Everyone is all smiles from the time they enter the house, as they see the vehicles they will riding, bright blue and orange six-passenger “couches,” as they pull into the loading area. Your couch that will spin (WOW, do they SPIN), twist and rock as you pass by 18 separate scenes, with 30 robotic characters that bring this crazy childhood story to life. As The Cat and Thing 1 and Thing 2 tear up the house, the goldfish in the teapot is the voice of reason and finally warns them of Mom’s return. Will they get the house cleaned up just in time like in the book? It’s supremely silly with just the right dash of absurdity.
