About the Ride Info Box

Tilt-A-Whirl (formerly called Round Up) is a spinning carnival ride located across from Sheriff Sam's Saloon in Last Frontier. It opened in 1974(?).

The name was changed from Round Up to Tilt-A-Whirl in 2016... But why?



Up until XXXX, the backs of the cars were painted with western scenes.



  • Sign: Tilt-A-Whirl (uppercase A)
  • Guide Map: Tilt-a-Whirl (lowercase A)
  • In-Park Map Signs: TILT-A-WHIRL
  • Website: Tilt-A-Whirl

Since they are no longer calling this Round Up, and instead using the actual name of the carnival ride, I guess it should be an uppercase A. But that's a nitpick. I just didn't want this ride to feel left out.
