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.
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!
