Radiator Springs Racers

Description from PassPorter's Disneyland Resort and Southern California Guidebook:

Your road trip starts out as a short jaunt through Radiator Springs...and then you  join Mater in a friendly game of tractor-tipping. Zooming away from the farmer, you encounter other town inhabitants, then your car gets a little grooming, in either Ramone's House of Body Art or Luigi's Casa Della Tires. Then you're off on a high-speed, friendly race with another car full of guests, through the hills, twists, and turns of Ornament Valley! Which car will win? Smile for the camera at the finish line. If you like Test Track, you'll love Radiator Springs Racers! Lines for the ride are often huge, so consider heading off for a FASTPASS as soon as the gates open, or take the single rider line if you don't mind splitting up the party.  Rider switch available. Health warning. Must transfer from wheelchair/ECV. Handheld captioning.

A must-do! Try to get a FastPass or get in the single rider queue. I've never known this attraction to NOT have a loooooong stand-by wait time.

California Adventure has this ride and WDW has Test Track. Advantage California Adventure.

Better than test track at EPCOT. Very well themed and a fully immersive experience. You really feel like you are in Radiator Springs.

Love it, love it, love it. The music, the scenery, the tractors!

OMG - this was just AMAZING! It was like Test Track on steroids, and was the absolute best thing we rode in Disneyland!

This is like a mini roller coaster. My daughter was frightened by the speed and the banking. Wait until the children are ready for this experience.

Favourite ride at this park! Ride it early, plus get a fastpass so you can enjoy it twice!

Grab a fast pass first thing at park opening! then run to the ride and ride it asap lines get long fast! But it is SO much fun!!

So this is an absolute must do! The lines are ridiculous early, so fast pass it if you can. Although the cue is amazing as well, so do that once if you have the patience. Also, a totally different experience at night, so try to do that once as well.... Really just ride as many times as you possibly can. You'll thank me later.
