According to a press release from Disney, the RIDEMAKERZ experience invites guests into the ultimate car customizing shop where they can build a one-of-a-kind radio control car, or “RIDE.” Between bodystyles and colors, tires and wheels, lights and sounds, accessories and decals, RIDEMAKERZ estimates there are more than 649 million possible build combinations, not including individual decal placement.
“RIDEMAKERZ delivers high-octane experience and one-of-a-kind fun,” said Downtown Disney Vice President Keith Bradford. “We’re excited to add RIDEMAKERZ to our existing portfolio of unique offerings at Downtown Disney. It fills a niche our guest’s have been looking for.”
Complete RIDEZ range in price from $10 to $32 (plus tax), depending on body and paint style chosen. Guests can add the radio remote control option for an additional $25, and custom accessories range in price from about $2 for grill guards, spoilers, and hood scoops to $15 for themed kits. The RIDEZ measure approximately 12 inches long, or 1:18 scale, and are easy to assemble with snap-in, snap-on components that do not require glue.
