Who Refurbished Roger Rabbit’s Car Toon Spin?

Back in September of this year, Roger Rabbit’s Car Toon Spin was closed for a full overhaul. If you’ve seen some pictures took inside this dark, cartoony ride, you surely noticed some paint peel-offs and dust all over the props. In fact the whole thing did look like neglected by maintenance crews, adding more injury to the already tarnished reputation of this ride (mainly constant breakdowns and the weird incident involving a kid falling out of his cart, which ran over him and caused serious injuries that took away his life several years later).

Gladly, the greatest and funniest Toontown attraction was reopened on December 16th, and it looks like new! Dust and paint peels are gone forever, and everything looks so colorful, shiny and awesome! Let’s hope the breakdowns are a thing of the past as well, but even if they remain some people consider them one of Car Toon Spin’s quirks, as they allow the visitors to walk around and take pictures of the props.

By the way, the video belongs to DisneyGirl4ever :D

Whoa, some kid actually died because of this ride? That sounds pretty bad, the new ride looks great though.

Yes. I don't want to talk about it in the blog since it's a quite sad story, but that lead to a huge overhaul of Car Toon Spin back in 2001. There's people that hate Roger Rabbit and the ride because that incident.
