Galaxy Spin

Cypress Gardens

Cypress Gardens' Galaxy Spin is similar to a Wild Mouse coaster, but with an added twist - spinning cars. Adding to the excitement, the individual four-passenger cars are sent through the twisted track of switchback hairpin turns and sudden quick drops while spinning. Since the spinning is uncontrolled, each ride on Galaxy Spin is a unique roller coaster experience.
