Tomorrowland Speedway Review
This is one of those rides that incite instant addiction in children and immediate regret in their parents. The reasons for the former are evident: the brightly colored Mark VII model cars that swerve around the four 2,260-foot tracks with much vroom-vroom-vrooming. Like real sports cars, the vehicles are equipped with rack-and-pinion steering and disc brakes; unlike the real thing, these run on a track. However, the track is so twisty that it's hard to keep the car on a straight course. Expect to spend a lot of time waiting your turn on the track and returning your vehicle after your lap. All this for a ride that achieves a top speed of 7 mph.
For people with disabilities: To drive the cars, you must be able to steer, press the gas pedal, and transfer into the low car seat. Skip on a first-time visit unless you'll break your child's heart.
