The ride used to be cool, but now its pretty boring becuase the film is dated and therefore the audio and picture isnt of the best quality. Thankfully the ride is air conditioned and some of the sequences still do look pretty cool.

A very good ride simulator with a good pre show and theming. I thought it felt like you were on the race track actually racing.

Pretty cool. The ride went very nicely with the movie and became quite intense sometimes. You dont control the ride but it moves you along to the raceway very well. Fun little side trip.

Probably a good ride in its day, but last time I rode it, it stunk. The movie didnt go with the movement at all and the actual movie and sound was noticeably old and poor quality I wish PKD kept the ride around for the 2005 season, because Spongebob gets old real fast, even if this ride wasnt the best either

One of the better ride simulations, that included a good pre-show and good themeing. Another good point is that there are two theaters which keeps the line moving faster than the similar theater at Six Flags Great Adventure. Loses a point because it is hard to imagine you are driving a car when your hands are at your sides.

The movie is old and really not done that well. The ride was supposed to simulate a NASCAR race. But when they filmed it, they put the camera down low on the bumper, the car your supposed to be in just keeps swerving left and right, passing people each time on each side. Real races arent like that. Plus the camera is much too low, they should have put it up on the hood so your not just looking at tail pipes. The most realistic feeling scene is in the pits, when they jack the car up. This ride really isnt worth doing unless youve got 10 minutes to spare with absolutely NO other options.
