You know your child best... Can they handle this iconic Disneyland attraction or will it cause trauma and ruin the rest of the day? This dark ride is really dark. I personally tried to help my children with the ride by watching some videos beforehand and talking more about the funny parts. Honestly, I thought they would get on the ride just for the sake of the possibility of seeing an animatronic failure in action, but it did not work as planned and they ended up not riding it. I still put it on the list because your kids if they go on it will enjoy it. Yo ho yo ho...
