Radiator Springs Racers is the kind of ride nobody but Disney can do. The new $200 million attraction in the 12-acre Cars Land at Disney California Adventure brings to bear all the theme park giant's strengths and abilities: immersive storytelling, detailed thematic scenery, life-like animatronic characters and the illusion of speed and thrill.

Car Land's best-reviewed ride -- Radiator Springs Racers -- broke down on opening morning of the newest land at the Disney California Adventure park. Riders stranded when the ride stopped Friday were escorted away safely, and workers -- appropriately wearing mechanics' costumes -- walked  onto the tracks to inspect. The ride got going again a little more than an hour after halting. Debbie Heaton, 41, emerged from it, saying it was worth the wait -- “Because it was racing!

What's better than an E Ticket ride? How about an F Ticket? Radiator Springs Racers aims to redefine our expectations of an E Ticket attraction by combining a classic dark ride with a thrilling head-to-head drag race. Currently under construction at Disney California Adventure , the $200-million ride debuting in summer 2012 will take passengers on a four-minute journey through stalactite caverns, around hairpin turns and along high-speed straightaways. Each side-by-side race ends with a randomly selected winner.
