ABOUT THE ATTRACTION:
Lightning McQueen’s Racing Academy is an indoor show located in Sunset Boulevard at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. During the show, Lightning McQueen attempts to teach viewers of the attraction how to race. Chick Hicks, Lightning’s Rival from the first movie, hacks into the racing system, and challenges him to a virtual simulator race.
Opening Date: March 31st, 2019.
Bite-Sized Review: Lightning McQueen’s Racing Academy isn’t exactly a bad addition to Disney’s Hollywood Studios…but with the quality of other additions like Galaxy’s Edge and Toy Story Land, it is kind of disappointing. The show itself is entertaining enough in the moment, but isn’t memorable in any way. I hope that Cars gets better representation at Disney’s Hollywood Studios sometime in the future.
ATTRACTION GRADE: 4/10
