I can't believe they did change an opening day ride at WDW for a cheap Winnie the Pooh ride that has a smaller line than Mr toad.
We are pretty lucky to have so many dark rides at Disneyland when the other parks have a few each. I went on them so much as a kid because I liked them and Space Mountain used to make me sick. Even at age 26, I still ride them for fun and nostalgia.
My mom never use to let me ride Mr. Toad as a kid because when he dies he goes to hell. (Strict Christian family)
I went with a friend and was happily shocked that the ride just ended like that. Hehe. A very happy ending no?
Interestingly, the "Hell" portion of the ride is not officially referred to as "Hell". They use another name for it but I can't think of it...
Even though bad little Toad does get sent to Hades, it is certainly implied his wild, maniacal driving even gets him out of there, considering your car travels out the other side of the Hot Place, seemingly escaping certain doom once again! Also, I love how the Devil looks frighteningly similar to the Judge! What a great ride!
