The Mad Hatter Tea Party scene is an original Disneyland attraction. The 1951 Alice in Wonderland movie inspired this tea party scene.
It locates next to Alice in Wonderland, at the edge of Fantasyland at the edge of Matterhorn.
Arrangement of the Mad Hatter Tea Party scene
Three platters revolve and have 18 different cups on them. All three platters revolve at their speeds.
Additionally, the cups also have individual fixed numbers and speed of revolutions. The two heart cups are the slowest moving cups. Then comes the purple cup, followed by the orangy cup, which moves the fastest.
Guests may feel dizzy on the ride. Therefore, one must note that one can control how fast the teacups move. A silver wheel inside each cup allows the guest to control how slow or fast they move.
As the ride can get one dizzy, it is advised not to board it just after eating. One might likely throw up on the ride if one does not have a strong stomach.
