These guys have made me laugh a few times
I originally listened to Podcast: The Ride on a recommendation from a theme park fan without knowing anything else about the show. It took me about 2 1/2 months of listening to realize that these guys were comedy writers, which explained why all of their childhood stories are about being mamaâs boys and social outcasts. I didnât really know what a podcast from 3 comedians would be like, but this is a lot more unintentionally funny than I expected. Itâs definitely worth your time.
I love this just as it is, don't ever change. Or do change if you want to. Still perfect.
Five Star is purely and only for the city walk saga.A true epic of the podcast medium.The modern day Odyssey.
I am not the most knowledgeable another theme parks and never really cared about them until listening to this podcast. Now I canât get enough, even to the point of listening to 19 episodes about CityWalk. I was truly hooked when listening to the over two hour long episode about parking lots with Nick Wiger. If these men can make that interesting, then anything they discuss can be. Truly a fun and informative podcast for all fans of Disney, Universal, and theme parks.
Pairs well with a nice cheese.
I enjoy this podcast! I am pleasantly surprised by how much I am enjoying the CityWalk saga. Shout out to the sector keeper!
I give this show 96 tomatoes.
The sectorkeeper sent me... boys boys... This is the first podcast I've ever really listened to - I found it from Mike's plug on Screen Junkies and thought I'd listen on my commute. I don't know what I expected, exactly, but I can tell you that the pod is 70% tangents and anecdotes, 20% dry facts that may or may not be related to the topic at hand and will certainly not ever be useful, and 10% actually discussing the topic. I don't often laugh out loud at stuff I'm listening to privately but I tell you, I don't think I've gone an episode without busting out laughing at some point. It's basically a workplace hazard. Anyway, I came into this because I thought there'd be roller coaster talk, only to find out that 2/3 of the hosts are Scared Bois and this is really about theming and history and comedy. But hey, I'm all here for it. I think out of all of the episodes so far I've actually only been on one of these rides/parks: Splash Mountain when I was a small child. Yet, I loved all the episodes, with the exceptions of the Bugsy one(not awful, but as one of the first episodes it was off-putting), and poor Sector 16 (If you can talk for 2 hours each about 2 different parking garages, you can spend more than 2 minutes on a food court!) Wrapping up this obscenely long review, Horny Treats Boi Jason is my favorite, but of course I love #Botanicus Good Boi Mike and #NoLaunchQueen Scott as well. I'm glad I could give the sectorkeeper and his pepperoni eyes strength and save him from hell with Sinatra as a roommate. But also #JusticeforSector16
Glad this exists!
These guys are great. I'm not too much into amusement parks, but I just love the company of the hosts and guests. This one is a must listen for me.
Iâve listened to these guys talk for dozens of hours about a mall Iâve never been to and parking garages. Sometimes they even talk about theme park rides. Itâs much more entertaining than that makes it sound
These are good boys and they curse just the right amount.
I came here for an episode with Paul Scheer and got hooked immediately. These guys (AKA The Good Boys) are very funny and have a real affection for theme parks, treats, and robots. Highly recommended.
Boys Boys, you give me strength
I started listening to these boys with the CityWalk Saga episodes, and I was hooked! That whole series is pure gold (especially the episodes with the Sector Keeper).The only real negative here is that one (or more) of the hosts loudly fiddles with his mic or mic stand on EVERY EPISODE. Periodically, the boys will be digging in on a juicy riff and then obnoxious crackling and crinkling will cut through and murder my ears in my headphones. Seriously boys, please stop touching those dang mics.If you can look past a few unpleasant sound issues, there are hours upon hours of fun to be had here!
Feel good and informative. Donât listen if youâre trying to avoid the temptation to spend all of your money at Disney. Even the 19 episode series on the inferior Hollywood city walk was a hoot.
you guys stop fumbling with the mics. 'great' if not ridiculously self indulgent, I do truly love listening but the mics getting messed with has made the show borderline unlistenable. I love you guys and see you perform when possible, just wish the mics only picked up Mike and Scott's dulcet tones and Jason's Philly accent.ð
Hilarious, sincere, and an absolute joy to listen to. As far as Iâm concerned, Podcast: The Ride is just about the only good reason for the internet these days.
Strap in for a rip roaring ride through the minutiae of amusement parks, themed rides and tourist attractions where specters dwell, Grammy worthy musical numbers ring and treats are bountiful. Accompany three good boy theme park journalists and the occasional guest on their journey to share knowledge, rate bathrooms and inspire!
Well. The sector keeper sent me here to leave a review. I canât get enough of that city walk song. In addition to the rest of the podcast.
I'm sorry that I've got to be the one to say it, but Whitney Houston (Rest In Power) was WRONG. "I believe the children are the future" sure sounds nice, but the TRUE FUTURE -- of podcasting, theme parks and over-priced treats -- is actually three childless men in their 30s: THE BUMPER CAR BOYZZZZZZZZZZ!!!!! Bumper Car Boys! Bumper Car Boys! Bumper Car Boys! (Oh, and Jason Sheridan. He's cool, too.)
These guys make my Fridays such a delight! They are hilarious. I am so happy I am not alone in my theme park love!!

I love podcast the ride! I subscribed to this in preparation for my Disney world/universal studios trip and still listening to these guys hilarious takes and fun times talking about theme parks. Thank you!Edit: sector keeper sent me back to make sure I did rate and review. See my review and smile all mighty sector keeper
Honestly, Iâm only leaving a review to help keep a small child who died of a fountain based staph infection from going to hell. Hope this gives you strength.
Even though Iâm not a huge theme park fan like the hosts find this show to be hilarious and surprisingly informative fun! And besides, it is the only podcast that prevents a little ghost boy from going to hell, so if you donât listen his transparent blood is on your hands.
I was already a big fan but the Sector Keeper made me realize i had never reviewed the show. 10/10. Love the show, it has reconnected me with my love of theme parks. This show gives me strength!
This podcast is amazing but the standout episodes are definitely The Great Movie Ride and the 19 Part CityWalk Saga. I have begun saying âBoys, Boys, Boys.â in the Sector-Keeper voice! Great freakinâ pod.
Hope this helps the sector keeper get his strength back.
It gives me strength.
Reviewing to keep this perfect lad who sadly died of a staph infection out of hell. Seriously this podcast is a ton of fun, all the hosts are very goofy and they obviously have a good tome making the show which comes through every episode
Iâm only writing this review to give the Sector Keeper strength!
As a childless 42 year old theme park nerd who also enjoys comedy, this podcast is like a gift. Informative and entertaining. Turns out I'm the ideal audience for a ninteen part Citywalk exporation even though I much prefer Orlando's City Walk. I am hoping for that to be done in the future. It's f-ing important.
I wont listen to another episode until they bring back Bugsy Malone. *Please note I am not being sarcastic
Every Friday I look forward to hearing the next episode. This is such a fun listen. The hosts are super funny with a really great dynamic, and arenât afraid to let themselves go down a tangent if something interesting or funny to discuss which I love. This isnât some university course on history of theme parks, but a really enjoyable listen that revolves around them. Keep it up!!
A show hosted by 3 childless men in their 30âs who were simultaneously frightened and elated at the prospect of a ghost friend following them home.
Very good podcast with excellent advice about the correct amount of days to spend at Tokyo Disney.
This is a great podcast and i listen to it all the time, really funny, interesting, and fun. I wish i could put three stars so i could be mentioned in the podcast but 5 stars is the only rating I could give it
Any disnerd or fan of theme parks has to listen to only a few seconds to realize they speak our language. Add to it that these guys are accomplished in the comedy world, which shows. The most entertaining podcast Iâve found in a while. Binge it like you would churros.
I have survived many episodes of this podcast and have even bought one of the souvenir photos of myself looking very thrilled. Listen to this podcast or youâll end up in Sing Sing.
These guys just crack me up, I look foward to every Friday having a new episode to listen to, they NEVER dissapoint.
I work for a catering business and spend a lot of time on the road. These guys definitely make the rides more enjoyable. They often joke about their âlack of researchâ, but thatâs the charm of this show. Three guys, along with a guest, joking and sharing stories as they geek out over pop culture and amusement parks. Love the show, guys. Cat in the Hat w/ Jenny Nicholson, Astroworld w/ Nick Mundy, The E.T. Adventure are definitely the highlights of the show so far.
If you admire fake theme park rocks and internally scream when a guest states âIâve never thought to admire the exterior of the rideâ, this is the podcast for you! More than just facts or history about the parks! The amount of constant laughs makes up for the times Iâm yelling the correct WDW fact they have forgotten or misstated. I love all the Disney episodes, but also enjoy the other ones as well (especially Hard Rock Park ð). Unlike any other theme park podcast for sure! Found myself critiquing the Westworld Park from the show. Would love to hear yâall thoughts!
This is a great podcast. Never though I would enjoy people talking about the mickey and friends parking structure for over 2 hours... Turns out I do! Five stars!
If youâve been wondering what happened to Vernon Douglas, and two men featured in iSteve, weâve got you covered. If youâre a casual theme park attender, enthusiast or donât even know what a theme park is I guarantee you will enjoy this podcast: thereâs a little something for everyone. Youâre afraid of unproportionate figures such as a harmless garden bumble bee expanded to the size of an elephant, no worries! Scott is your man. Listen as he trembles with fear telling tales of the many things he fears within the theme parks. Perhaps you too will be inspired of his triumphs, as he keeps returning to these grounds from which he is haunted, but also elated.Say youâve got a sweet tooth? At last! A podcast that lightly touches on your cravings of over-hyped, over-priced, carnival style treats. Jason is your guy, if you want to hear a grown man talk passionately about desserts. Also, he lights up your speakers as he describes his future as Mayor of Disneyland. I know, things are getting political but, hey! If you canât take a joke, take a hikeâ¦ up holiday hillâ¦ amirite? INSIDE JOKE FOR PODCAST THE RIDE FANS LOL!!! PTR:4EVRHave you ever found yourself completely enthralled with a brief description of a Little Caesarâs pizza joint, loosely designed like a Dave and Busters? If not, hold on tight because Mike will make anyone feel like they grew up in Schaumburg, Illinois. Where even is that? I donât know! Listening to Mikeâs excitement for animatronics looking for their pilot boyfriends is the equivalent of watching Duck Walk Battles. Podcast the ride, thank you for your contributions. Youâre welcome for this review.
Great 2 hours of self deprecating comedy and half-knowledge about rides youâve only ridden once. Keep it up boys, and get some more park heads in there. Enough of these improv dorks who think Disney World is just the Magic Kingdom. I want people who can repeat the old Test Track in-ride audio verbatim!
Great podcast that matches perfectly with my nerdom. If youâre a fan of comedy and or theme parks, this is a terrific pod.
There is a 2+ hour episode about a parking structure that is fun and interesting the entire time. If thatâs not enough for you, then I donât know what to tell you.
The perfect podcast for theme park nerds who want to listen to something a bit more risquÃ© (as devil may care as drinking Sprite for breakfast or contemplating riding Alien Encounter then ultimately bailing.) If youâve ever gotten into an argument about how many days to devote to the Tokyo Disney Resort on a trip to Japan this is the podcast for you. (By the way 3 days is the answer, dole whip floats or night blossoms are the true breakfast of champions, and I, an 8 year old girl, was lucky enough/dumb or brave enough to ride Alien Encounter during the soft opening. It terrified me & I forced everyone to go on it 4 more times that trip.)
