“Steer and spin a runaway taxicab through the wacky streets of Toontown as you follow the adventures of Roger Rabbit.”

On January 26, 1994, the Mickey’s Toontown attraction Roger Rabbit’s Car Toon Spin opened. It is notable for being the first dark ride to be built at Disneyland in about ten years. Based on the film Who Killed Roger Rabbit?, guests are taken through the streets of Toontown while riding in Lenny the Taxicab, exploring a back alley while working to avoid the toxic concoction Dip being poured by the villainous weasels. Guests have the ability to steer their cab a full 360 degrees so they can gain control through the ride, even riding the attraction backwards if they would like. The attraction features 17 Audio-Animatronic characters, 59 props, and 20 special effects. A version of this attraction was opened in Tokyo Disneyland on April 15, 1996.
