Check out This POV of the Radiator Springs Racers at Carsland, Disneys California Adventure! \r
Radiator Springs Racers is a slot car dark ride attrion in Cars Land at Disney California Adventure. The attrion features third-generation Test Track technology, an attrion located at Epcot in Walt Disney World. Radiator Springs Racers is themed to the fictional world from Disney·Pixars Cars. The attrion is the most expensive to be built in the entire Disneyland Resort, one of the most expensive attrions Disney has ever built, and one of the most expensive theme park attrions in the world at an estimated cost of over $200 million, which took up about 18% of the entire cost of the $1.1 billion expansion plan for Disney California Adventure Park. The attrion takes guests in a six-person vehicle through a briefing with Doc and Lighting McQueen, charers from the film Cars. Guests race another guest vehicle through turns and banks, ending with a randomized race result.\r
At the Whats Next? presentation at Disney California Adventure on June 11, new, Imagineer Kathy Mangum gave a brief rundown of the storyline for the attrion.\r
Walking past the courthourse, the queue goes through some of the original buildings of Radiator Springs when Stanley first opened his Stanleys Oasis business at the natural Radiator Springs that provided the towns name and enter the old hotel he set up in Taillight Caverns. Guests board their ride vehicle and are taken on an idyllic drive through Ornament Valley Range. The vehicle enters the dark ride portion of the attrion as guests nearly run into several Audio-animatronic charers. As the vehicle swerves out of the way, it encounters the Sheriff who appears as if he is going to issue a speeding ticket, but instead is impressed with the driving skills and invites the car to the towns big race. Before the race can begin, though, Mater has to take the vehicle for a round of tror tipping. Suddenly, Frank the Tror wakes up and chases the trespassers off of his farm. On the way back into town, the vehicle is prepared for the race. At this point, the vehicle will either turn to Luigis Casa Della Tires for a tire change or to Ramones House of Body Art for a quick paint refresh. From there, the two vehicles sit idle to one another at the starting point. After Luigis word, the race begins through the remaining out-door portion of the attrion reaching the rides top speed of 40 mph (64 km/h). The race finishes after the vehicles drop a sloped bank where guests have their on-ride photo taken.
