Kang & Kodos' Twirl 'n' Hurl is a part of the Springfield expansion of Universal Studios Florida. As part of the expansion, the International Food & Film Festival was demolished in order to make way for Fast Food Boulevard. Minigames were built in front of The Simpsons Ride and the Duff Gardens; Lard Lad Donuts, and Bumblebee Man's Taco Truck were built as well. Kang & Kodos' Twirl 'n' Hurl was the last experience opened in the Springfield expansion. The ride is manufactured by Zamperla.
The queue is a brief walk around the spinner and into a shaded area where guests board the ride. While waiting, guests can watch brief clips from the Treehouse of Horror specials.
Guests enter their UFO spaceships. Once the ride starts, Kang and Kodos exclaim they have tricked the guests and the only way to get off the ride is to "attack" Springfield. Nelson, Homer, Bart, Willie and Grandpa will interact with the riders when the riders pass their faces which also spin when they are passed. Also during the ride, Kang and Kodos interact with the riders as well. When the ride ends, Kang and Kodos say that they are the only ones who truly had fun.
