Cars Land, the latest attraction in California Adventure just had a “soft opening.”
That means a relative handful of visitors were let in to test the rides. We talked to some.
How much fun is Cars Land?
How much fun would it be to be a car?
Luigi’s Flying Tires is kind of like the Teacups, except you “steer” your tire by leaning. And there are big beach balls flying around.
The whole town of Radiator Springs from the Pixar Cars films is recreated, too. The theme is gas stations along Route 66, the old southern route through the West to California.
Like a desert town.
From the perspective of a car.
Everyone is talking about how Cars Land cost Disney a billion dollars to build. But it doesn’t cost a $billion to get in.
The biggest new ride is Radiator Springs Racers, a drag race through desert mountains.
The scenery includes mountain and caves, the ride includes car characters in a dark section, and the ride concludes with a fast drag race with another car.
So what’s the verdict? Is Cars Land fun?
Reports from the first guests indicate that Radiator Springs Racers is a whole LOT of fun. Luigi’s Tires is fun, too. And the whole place is a great addition to California Adventure and Disneyland.
Yes, Cars Land is fun. Almost as much fun as being a car in Radiator Springs.
Have you been to Carsland yet? What do you think?
