Although the Spiderman or Transformers rides have probably more thrills, Ratatouille do have thrilling sequences and i think it's a perfect family ride, using the same kind of technology than Universal. The goal for DLP was to build a family ride and to have guests spending more money in the park. And i think they've reached this goal. Young children will love it, it won't be too scary for them, and parents will be happy to see their children happy. And they will spend then their money at the Chez Remy restaurant. If the ride is as successful as i think it will be this should give DLP the funds to build others new rides in a near future!
