A little while ago we showed you a short virtual drive through of the upcoming Cars Land attraction area which will be modeled exactly after Radiator Springs and we got super giddy. Today Disney is blowing our minds by taking us “behind the wall” and showing work-in-progress pictures of the Radiator Springs Racers attraction which is sure to be one of the main draws of Cars Land. In these pictures we actually learn a few new fact about the ride. While we already knew that the ride’s architecture is based on the GM Test Track ride at Disneyworld, what will set Radiator Springs Racers apart from its Orlando, FL cousin is that on this ride two cars will be on track at once racing side by side! How awesome is that going to be?! In addition to the side-by-side action ride goers can expect extreme banked turns, elevation changes, and flat out straights. All of this will be happening as the ride takes the “racers” around Radiator Springs landmarks such as Cadillac Mountain Range. Just when we thought we could not possibly get more excited for this ride Disney finds a way to get us hyped once again for Cars Land. 2012 has never seemed as far away as it does now!
I have been excited about the upcoming “Cars Land” at Disney’s California Adventure as soon as I learned of its development but the wait is horrible! Watching Cars 2 just made it worse! What does help however is this neat little virtual drive through released by Disneyof what Cars Land will look like once it is completed in 2012. Remember this is a “virtual” drive through so naturally the real thing will have a lot more detail but this is a cool way to get a feel for what the layout will be.
We gave you the heads up about this ride a while back. Well about 2 hours ago Disney released footage of some of the first test runs of the Radiator Springs Racer ride that will be in “Cars Land” in Disney’s California Adventure theme park in 2012. From the video it looks like there will be some elevation changes and steep banked turns! I can’t wait!
I told you another “Cars” post was coming up! So I did some light digging after I saw the trailer and I found these pictures posted on Disney’s official blog of the first “test” car for the “Radiator Springs Racers” ride that will be a part of ”Cars Land” opening in 2012 at Disney’s California Adventure. Looking at these test pictures makes me feel like a kid on a sugar rush! I’m sure that will probably fade once I see the two hour line on opening day. Such is life…
