RC Racer is the most intense attraction in the Toy Story Playland area, and is inspired by the speedy remote control car that is seen in the “Toy Story” movies. A half-pipe roller coaster manufactured by Intamin, it is themed to resemble the Hot Wheels track that RC rides in the films. This theme is extended into the queueline, which is designed to look like an extended racetrack.
While it looks like a roller coaster, RC Racer actually offers a similar experience to the “swinging boat” rides that can be found at amusement parks all over the world. RC rocks backwards and forwards on the track, gradually building momentum until he reaches the top on either side. The vehicle then gradually slows until comes to a halt in the station.
