A fun motion simulator that focus a little too much on 3D

Say hello to one of our all-time favorite mice! No, not Mickey Mouse, sorry, buddy. We're talking about Remy, the lovable star of one of Disney's most charming movies ever. Ratatouille Adventure is a 3D trackless dark ride, which is a little bit reminiscent of Hollywood Studios’ Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway. You board a vehicle and follow Remy in chase sequences and set pieces across a kitchen, a restaurant and other locations all while you have your 3D glasses on to see that adorable rat from a whole new angle.

Charming is indeed a good word to describe this ride, and it all starts in the queue. The queue is completely enclosed and makes you feel like you are walking across the streets of France at night, until you make it inside Gusteau’s, which is the famous restaurant from the movie. There you can find animated portraits of Remy trying some of his favorite dishes, which is a good opportunity for pictures. You soon grab your 3D glasses and then it’s time to join Remy on a brand new adventure! Oh, just a little warning: this paragraph makes it feel like this will happen in a snap, but you will probably be stuck in the queue for an hour or two. Yay!

So, how is the ride? It’s fun. You are shrunk to the size of a rat, and then it’s time to follow Remy across several setpieces. Those mostly include quick chase sequences as Remy runs away from cooks inside the restaurant. Honestly, I expected something more than just that, and just one scenario through the whole ride. Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure is basically a first person view of the chase sequence you see in the movie.

I do wish the ride was just… bigger? I mean, if I’m shrunken to the size of a rat, make me feel small, and create a bunch of giant tables and animatronics around me. Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway, for example, makes it feel like you are traveling across a real world, with a lot of stuff around you, including Goofy riding a train and several animatronics. In Remy, a big screen is always the star of the show, and the ride can even feel a bit claustrophobic because of that. I guess they wanted the 3D to be the star of the show, and that explains the screen being so important to the ride.

I do think that Runaway Railway is the better ride, but Remy is still a major success in Epcot. In fact, it’s the most popular attraction in the whole park, behind Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind. At the time of this review, queue times range from one to two hours, and you should definitely make this one your top priority for Disney Genie+.

Will Kids enjoy it?

This is a really fun 3D motion simulator for kids around 4+ years old. You do need to wear 3D glasses, and this ride shakes a little bit, which can be uncomfortable for some very young guests. If your children have no problem with any of this, then bring them along for the ride. There is also the major perk that there aren’t height requirements for Remy, so you can bring the entire family to have fun.

The worst part is definitely the queue times, which can easily reach 60 minutes during early park hours. This is one of the most popular attractions inEpcot, after all. Bring snacks or something to keep your kids entertained while you wait and enjoy Ratatouille!
