The RC Racer

The RC Racer roller coaster is a launched linear synchronous motor thrill ride utilizing magnets to hurtle an oversized racer car forwards and backward up a half pipe track, providing thrills in the form of hang time at either end.  There are versions of this ride in Disneyland Paris and Hong Kong Disneyland (the latter of which is pictured today).  There's nothing particularly spectacular here, but it's still pretty fun.  The car picks up some decent speed as it zooms closer and closer toward the tip of each end, and it's a nice trainer for young adrenaline junkies.  Overall, I consider this a solid ride worth going on at least once, though not necessarily worth constant repeat patronage. 

The RC Racer car hangs momentarily at the peak of its half pipe course.
