Chip n Dale's GADGETcoaster
Last Friday, when revising the newly revamped Mickey's Toontown, I realized that this themed area at the back of Disneyland Park actually had the distinction of being tied for the land with the most high profile, "E-Ticket" level attractions in the park. Though not everyone may classify them to this caliber (they would at least rate all Toontown rides a D-Ticket or above, I think the home of Mickey and Minnie and friends has a pretty strong pedigree now.
There's the brand new Mickey & Minnie's Runaway Railway, which I've expressed my love for previously. It's truly a charming and magnificent ride, and it captures the magic and whimsy that defines Disney. Roger Rabbit's Cartoon Spin may not be the first ride most people offer when building a list of E-Ticket attractions, but it's long been a cult favorite and critically underrated. And then there's the subject of today's post, Gadget's Go Coaster, which has been renamed to Chip n Dale's GADGETcoaster with the Toontown refresh.
One of the removals in the new Mickey's Toontown was the Chip n Dale Treehouse that kids could clamber up and through at the far west end of the area. Unfortunately, it was also a bit of a germ box and a maintenance hassle. So it was replaced with an open seating area with a bit of a shade overhang. Chip n Dale are still top tier Disney cartoon characters, so it made sense to include them among the attractions list in Mickey's Toontown. The solution? Lean upon the Chip n Dale Rescue Rangers universe and add the two chipmunks with their scientifically-inclined, always-tinkering counterpart, Gadget!
