From the park's description of the new ride:
Sitting in miniature hot rod race cars, riders will enjoy an action-packed adventure with plenty of drops and thrills on a roadster-themed racetrack. Kids and parents can ride together as they take a sprint around the grand prix track. Joining 11 other rides and attractions, from flying airplanes to pint-sized trucks and trains, Speedy Gonzales Hot Rod Racers will debut in early summer.
Rival Knott's Berry Farm, in Buena Park on the other side of the Los Angeles metro area, is revamping its Camp Snoopy kids' area for this summer, so Magic Mountain's extra attention to its Bugs Bunny World area will give local families another option in a summer when area industry leader Disneyland isn't adding anything new.
