    Ok, I was just at Disneyland a couple of months ago and I don't recall this ride. Which one is it? Anyone have a picture?

    Gadgets Go Coaster (I think thats what your refering to) is the child's rollercoaster at the far end of Toontown near Mickey and Minnie's houses and Chip n' Dale's Treehouse.

    Isn't it amazing how they got three trains running on the coaster with the same people on all of them?!

Guess we should bulldoze Splash Mountain, Mr.Toad, Roger Rabbit, ElecTRONica, and a ton of other attractions since kids dont know about them.

    As far as im concerned Disneyland should cater to kids who grew up at Disneyland in the 80s and 90s exclusively. They have been doing a pretty good job of it so far with a new Star Tours and bringing back the Subs and Captain Eo
    Alright I admit it, I have never seen Rescue Rangers or Tron! But I have seen Song of the South, Who Framed Roger Rabbit, and Icabod and Mr. Toad. I know this family who has 4 kids that got a bootleg version of Song of the South from eBay and they used to let me borrow it. I have watched Roger Rabbit on Youtube and rented Mr. Toad. But I still have never seen Rescue Rangers. That is probably the reason I want that ride themed to just Chip 'n' Dale since I have seen them in old Disney cartoons.

    Ah! Ok, we road that. It was my son's gateway coaster. This is the coaster that finally got both my boys to try other coasters! I love this coaster just because of that!

    Generally I agree, but I feel like that Go-Coaster is so barely themed anyway that its only relevance to Toontown is its name, which most people don't recognize. And I'm not sure anyone could make a convincing case that Rescue Rangers achieved the same sense of timelessness of other obscure Disneyland characters like Mr. Toad, the cast of Song of the South/Splash Mountain, or the Country Bears...

    MiceChatter Kermitdefrog once had an idea that I liked, which would be to retheme the Go-Coaster to a black-and-white airplane ride and base it on the Mickey Mouse short Plane Crazy, as an extension to his house across the street. Maybe have some black and white farm animal AAs too, mooing and barking and what not at the riders.

    Re: Why do the Rescue Rangers still have an attration at Disneyland?

    MarkTwain, that's a cute idea but I think the premise of ToonTown is that it's a more urban setting. Magic Kingdom's Mickey's Toontown Fair which is in contrast supposed to be like a toon version of a country fair had "The Barnstormer at Goofy's Wiseacre Farm"which is basically what you just discribed. Mickey's country house at WDW even had a barn and a greenhouse.

    As far as Toontown being much better than Micky's Toontown Fair, I don't think many disagree as I hear it is being torn out for the fantasyland expansion.

    I say keep it as is, it works because Gadget would tinker and make this, but I'm just hoping it Doesn't get a Tinkerbell re-dress because Tinkerbell could build it lol

    And I don't know the answer to the second question. I guess there has to be a Toad ride in the U.S.A. or else there will be protestors fighting at the gates for hours and give Disney bad publicity.
    My kids are 5 and 8 and both have watched Rescue Rangers... we live in a world of DVDs, just because the shows aren't syndicated doesn't mean that parents are getting the DVD's for their kids to watch.

    How do you think those obscure characters achieved timelessness? Someone decided they needed to be remembered.

    I love Mickey as much as the next Micechatter, but he has plenty. Let Gadget have her one little ride. It's the only attraction related to anything Disney Afternoon.
