Rugrats was a pretty fun family coaster. I like these junior Vekoma inverts. This one had some pretty good Rugrats theming and the helixes were fun, especially the finale which had some decent Gs.

Rugrats Runaway Reptar/Flying Ace Aerial Chase is a steel sit down roller coaster. Inverted. It was built in 2003. It is 48' tall, it is 1,122' long, it is 26 mph, it is 1:30 long. A very nice family inverted coaster. I liked the theming for Rugrats and the kids liked it also. Only runs one train but it cycles quickly. I thought it was a smooth ride and very comfortable. It delivers alot of thrills. I especially liked the last turn. It pulls some hard Gs. Dont be afraid to try this one even though its a junior coaster its alot of fun. It's fun, rerideable, it has a large capacity, and a long duration.

First of all, this is a junior coaster. It is not intended for adults or teen agers. Second, this is a very good junior coaster. My first grader had a blast on this. This is so unique for kids because they are used to being boxed in, and this introduces a different sensation to coaster riding. My daughter and myself went on this numerous times and I am basing my rating on her opinions. It is quick and isnt rough at all. Remember, you have to scale everything down so what is slow to grown-ups is very fast to a child(a lot of us have something from our childhood that we remember "as being bigger than that". It may seem short but it just about right, and it is slightly rough for a grownup, but a child doesnt fit the same so things are different. Kids love this ride. If you are over 12 you probably shouldnt bother.

I thought Runaway Reptar was lame. The ride was short, which only permits one train operation, but they also only gave one cycle unlike some parks, so its a damned if you do damned if you dont situation. The ride was ok, as others have noted, a bit rough, but hey, its a Vekoma, right? The kids did love it though, and they ate up the Rugrats themeing, which was pretty nice. The seats were a bit akward, but overall, a nice kiddie ride. The youngens would give it an 8 or 9, and I would give it a 3 or 4, so I think a 5 works out well

I found this coaster to be a cute ride. Nothing impressive, but I thought it was better then my friend thought it was, when said said "That was retarded!"

Colorful, its about the only upside to this ride, It is a cool family ride but thumps a lot, it also has too many restraints and bars. If you are looking for a thrill, this isnt the ride, I would refer Drop Zone!

I nice junior coaster but I didnt expect it to be as much fun or as rough. They is no padding for the back of your head but if youre smart you wont throw your head back in the middle of the ride. There are also metal bars below the seats to prevent you from swinging your legs to the side. Unfortunately sometimes your legs will swing out into the metal which can be painful

If I ever have been undecided on a rides grade, it would be now. The Rugrats Coaster is not a standard kiddie ride, but the seats and restraints arent exactly made for the older rider. I dont exactly know what age group they were going for on this ride, since it is in the Nickelodeon Central section, I will assume...pre-teen. Anyhew, mildly intense, good beginner coaster, but still a 6. Well, its better than the sternwheeler!

Nice ride. I was shocked at how fast and rough it was. This isnt realy a kids ride, its more of a family ride, and it also pulls some hard Gs on the last turn.

A very nice family inverted coaster. Cool Rugrats theme and the kids loved it. I liked it too. Only running one train but cycles fast. Smooth ride and very comfortable. A very slick beginner coaster that has plenty of thrills. They also have photos available after the ride. Dont be afraid to give this one a try.
