Ride summary



Riders enter under the 30 foot cat hat. Once inside, they find themselves in the front yard of a house. As they look around, they see it is a cloudy, rainy day and Sally and her brother are looking out the window, bored. Through the front yard, riders enter the house through the porch and board a couch to continue the adventure.


Once aboard the couch, the Cat Helper sends riders on their way. As they travel deeper in to the house, they see it is raining outside the windows. As they start to go in, they see 'mom' leaving to go shopping. All of a sudden, there's a bump and the Cat in the Hat enters. He starts to show off balancing things on his hat before accidentally dropping them all and angering one's fish, Mr. Krinklebein. He then unleashes Thing One and Thing Two who run amuck throughout the house. Riders travel past the mischief and through a room where the walls spin around, and into a closet with clothes flying around. Thing One and Thing Two attempt to throw a piano at the riders, and the riders even get 'washed' in the washing machine. Just then, Mr. Krinklebein sees the mother outside the house. Not to worry, the cat pulls out his Thing-A-Majig and cleans everything up.

Upon leaving, riders hear Sally say "Should we tell her about it, what should we do? Well, what would YOU do if YOUR mother asked YOU?" Riders then disembark.
