It would be pretty tough for any ride to top Journey--perfect mixture of dark ride and thrill ride (with a bit of airtime thrown in).

I like Radiator Springs Racers a lot, too--but the dark-ride section (and the initial run up to it) is the best part. The whole Cars Land area is very well done, too.

I'd like to buy a vowel!

Wait, what? Sorry but I have to really disagree about this. And I do love Radiator Springs Racers, a lot. I don't even like the Cars franchise, but I love that ride. But more thrilling than Test Track? Sorry, no. If there is one thing I feel that Radiator Springs Racers is lacking is a really thrilling, awesome ending. The entire last part of the ride I feel like the ride wants to go faster, but it goes about half the speed of Test Track as it's top speed. IMO, when you have a ride that is based around RACING, your ride should have blown Test Track away, but it doesn't.

Different stroke for different folks. Yeah, Test Track hits a higher top speed but I much prefer the hills and turns in RSR. Just like you and RSR, I'm not trying to bring Test Track down as I love it, as well, but I just prefer RSR because I feel it offers more during the finale.

I also find the immersion of RSR adds a ton to the experience. Rather than looking straight ahead I always catch myself looking all around the environment during the race with the cliffs and rock formations that you're speeding around.

I'm sure we'll agree on Journey To The Center Of The Earth once I finally get over to Japan, though! Ever since I saw your POV of that one I've been jonesing for a fix, haha.
