Ratatouille Ride openings date: 10th July 2014
In the ride Ratatouille: L’Aventure Totalement Toquée de Rémy, guests shrink down to the size of a rat and join Remy and his friends as they scurry through the kitchen, dining room, and walls of Gusteau’s famous Parisian restaurant, all the while trying to avoid the nemesis from the film, Chef Skinner.
Trackless rat ride vehicles take guests through all the twists and turns of the attraction that combines real life set pieces with plenty of 3D imagery on large screens. It’s a similar type of ride experience to Universal Studios’ Transformers: The Ride 3D.
Compared to Transformers, Ratatouille is better!. The story of Transformers is simply a battle to save the planet, while with Ratatouille we relive the film by being not only actor, but also becoming the size of a rat, with differents traps and adventures.
During the ride, you feel air currents which increase the sensation of speed. Screens are encompassing, makes it all very immersive, unlike the Transformers screens which all takes place in front of you, due to the high walls on each side of the vehicle. For these reasons Ratatouille is, for me, a more successful experience, though each of these attractions are among the best in the world.
The movement of Ratatouille’s ride vehicles are more soft and fluid than Transformers, making Ratatouille a true family ride for all. It’s a dark ride, 3D, and sensory ride in one.
