    That said, it does look neat to see how all the vehicles move in a single synchronized manner; hopefully that doesn't lead to operational problems if one goes out of commission. It's also interesting that they seem to do a lot of movements that real cars can't do (sideways and diagonal slides), despite the physics of cars being an integral part of the Cars universe

    I'm also a big fan of fleshing out a park with a variety of smaller attractions, and recognize that they have been really missing with a lot of WDI's menu planning in the lase couple decades. However, the amount that they've spent on this attraction and its replacement is absurd for how inconsequential the experience will ultimately be

    That does seem to be true.

    Given the size of these vehicles and the movements they're making (they appear to have a high center of gravity for such a small wheel base), I wouldn't expect the speed to increase much. This is pretty much what I expected from the earliest descriptions, and it appears to be what were getting

    That said, they are highly important to flesh out the park. This one may be moderately insipid, but it should have a higher capacity than Flying Tires and, although a bit dry, at least will not cause frustration to those who can't get it to do what they think it should.

    So that's an improvement, I think.

    I'm not sure about the higher capacity. Looking at the cars, they only look to hold about 2 people which is what the flying tires did. That being said the loading and unloading should be quicker.

    How can anyone hate big half-eaten fruit and candy? The watermelon is an absolute masterpiece! Besides, Heimlich TALKS to you the whole way through the ride. It is even better than the song in Small World!!

    Masterpiece may be a bit much, but I think it's a fun B/C-ticket attraction. The biggest problems are that the trains are so long that only half of it hears any dialogue, and the ride is so short that it's over before it begins, but I think it's a fun concept.

    >>Well, assuming it is TDS' Aquatopia minus the water, it will indeed be continuously loading.<<

    I think this is where it will differ from Aquatopia. From what I've seen, the space is just too small to have a designated loading zone (which would need to be physically separated from the 'dance floor' with a barrier). They could either have vehicles load and then slip into the already-moving cars (like Aquatopia), or have one set that loads while the other does the ride portion, and then switch places when they're done

    Presumably, if this ride were being built from scratch rather that grafted into the Flying Tires setup they would have plenty of space to do that, but the format they have uses the space pretty poorly. Luckily, Aquatopia has shown that it doesn't need a particularly high capacity (since it never has a wait), so they should be okay with a cycle loading attraction
