Kang and Kodos are two human-eating aliens featured in The Simpsons.  Thankfully for us humans, their intelligence doesn't quite match their level of hunger for their favorite type of food.

This new Dumbo-style ride takes that humor to a new level.  Once again, Kang and Kodos are trying to eat people.  They have set us this carnival ride as a means of attracting people into their trap.  A few rather humorous signs show how the aliens really are our friends.  We're also supposed to tell everybody about this ride BEFORE we ride it.  Hmmm.  Perhaps this ride isn't as innocent as it sounds . . .

Any feeling of uncertainty should be eliminated while on Kang & Kodos' Twirl 'n' Hurl.  Throughout the ride you'll hear the aliens assure us again that we're *not* meant to be eaten.

Kang & Kodos' Twirl 'n' Hurl is a simple ride that can be enjoyed by people of all ages.  You can control the height of the flying saucers while flying around and around the alien in the middle of the ride.  Fans of The Simpsons, science-fiction / B movie humor, and families with young children will enjoy this ride the most.
