VIDEO: TikTokers Caught Screaming on The Cat in the Hat Ride Scolded by Universal Team Member

A viral TikTok video from Universal’s Islands of Adventure shows guests screaming on the Cat in the Hat ride in Seuss Landing before being admonished by a Team Member.

Guests Screaming on Cat in the Hat

The Cat in the Hat is a dark ride inspired by the Dr. Seuss book of the same name and is one of several opening-day attractions in Seuss Landing at Universal’s Islands of Adventure. The ride is infamous for its dated and sometimes creepy figures and audio-animatronics — particularly those of Thing 1 and Thing 2.

TikTok user @dianneradic shared a video of herself and friends screaming loudly at the Things while on the Cat in the Hat ride — which is not a thrill ride. Dianne wrote on the video “pov: you almost get kicked out of universal” and captioned it “Scariest moment of my life”. The video ends as a Team Member, apparently over a speaker system, says firmly, “In the front. Please stop that. It’s just a ride.”

Some commenters on the video agree that the Things are terrifying, while others note they would be irritated and frustrated if they experienced fellow riders screaming like this. A few commenters reference Thing 1 and Thing 2 not operating recently, possibly due to adult guests screaming during that portion of the ride, but it could have also been for maintenance.

Seuss Landing, inspired by Dr. Seuss stories, is one of eight themed lands of Universal’s Islands of Adventure. The land has several attractions, mostly geared toward younger visitors.

  • The Cat in the Hat: a dark ride telling the famous story of the same name
  • The High in the Sky Seuss Trolley Train Ride: a people-mover ride mostly inspired by “The Sneetches” that takes guests on one of two tracks for a tour above Seuss Landing
  • One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish: an aerial carousel ride during which riders can control the movement of their giant fish vehicles
  • Caro-Seuss-el: a standard carousel with non-standard Seuss creatures. The carousel’s roof was replaced last year during a long refurbishment.
  • Oh, The Stories You’ll Hear: a musical show featuring classic characters like the Cat in the Hat, Thing 1 & Thing 2, The Grinch, and The Lorax
  • If I Ran the Zoo: a play area inspired by the book of the same name

Food and beverage locations in Seuss Landing include Green Eggs and Ham Café, Circus McGurkus Café Stoo-pendous, Hop on Pop Ice Cream Shop, and Moose Juice, Goose Juice.

During the winter holidays, Seuss Landing is decorated and the Whos of Whoville wander the land, doing their Christmas shopping. There is a Grinch meet and greetGrinch and Friends Character Breakfast, and the “Grinchmas Who-liday Spectacular.” New Grinchmas merchandise just arrived ahead of the 2023 holidays.

There are various refurbishment projects taking place in Seuss Landing right now.
