New Ratatouille On-Ride Video Show You the Ride as WDS Guests See It !

Don't miss below our new Ratatouille on-ride video, filmed by Max this afternoon. And here is my comment on the ride. Although some seems to be disappointed by the ride - inevitably comparing it to Universal Spiderman or Transformers rides - i think WDI and DLP Imagineers did a great job. And i'm absolutely sure that the ride is much better than you think when you ride it in person. You must remember that the ride is in 3D with additionals heat, cold, and scents effects and a spinning vehicle, all things that you can't experiment when you watch the video.

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!

I have one advice for "some who seem disappointed by the ride": go to WDS and ride it yourself ... in reality!!!!! ... NOT on YouTube.
Even the best HD videos don't even come close to the real thing.

I experienced the ride myself on Saturday and it's simply stunning! For me it felt like a Mr.Toad's Wild Ride for the 21st century, with amazing special effects that immerse you completely into the story of the film. It's as wild and crazy as Mr. Toad's, but (of course) a lot more impressive, with a storyline known by contemporary audiences.

I never thought I'd say this, but I'm glad DLP has chosen to build Ratatouille in stead of Indy Adventure. In my opinion, the state-of-the-art Ratatouille ride is a lot more relevant to contemporary audiences than Indy.

Just like Radiator Springs Racers, Ratatouille is a WDI-homerun!

Considering this using the same track-less technology as the Winnie the Pooh ride at Tokyo Disneyland, I would expect it to be pretty good. On the surface, Pooh would seem "disappointing" too some, but it's probably one of the best rides I've ever been on. If people expect a thrill, they will probably always be disappointed, but who cares, this ride will cater for the larger demographic of people who want fun and good storyline.
