Attraction Details

Radiator Springs Racers is a high speed thrill ride that is themed to the Disney/Pixar film "Cars." In the newest generation of Disney's "Test Track" technology seen at Epcot in Walt Disney World Resort, six passenger vehicles will speed around an indoor and outdoor course.

In the attraction you will visit familiar locations and scenes in the film, including Main Street of Radiator Springs, Luigi's Casa Della Tires, Ramone's House of Body Art, Flo's V8 Cafe, and more. To add excitement, the attraction features high speed banked turns, elevation changes, tractor tipping, and of course all your favorite Cars characters before finishing with a side-by-side, outdoor race against another attraction vehicle.

The peaks of the mountain range, from left to right, represent classic Cadillac tail fins from 1957, 1958, 1959 (the Pinnacle), 1960, 1961 and 1962.[2]

Attraction Overview

The attraction begins in an attraction vehicle with an idyllic drive through the desert gone awry when the vehicle nearly runs into Mack the big-rig truck. As the vehicle swerves out of the way, it encounters the Sheriff who it appears is gonig to issue a speeding ticket but is impressed with the driving skills and invites the car to the big race! Before the race can begin, though, Mater has to take the vehicle for a round of tractor tipping. Unfortunately, Frank wakes up and chases the trespassers off of his farm.

On the way back in to town, the vehicle has to be prepared for the big race. At this point, the vehicle will either turn into Luigi's Casa Della Tires for a tire change or into Ramone's for a quick paint refresh. From there, the race begins through the remaining out-door portion of the attraction reaching the top speeds and coming to a photo-finish ending that will be different every time.
