But it still hits a top speed of about 37 mph and rises over 70 feet in the air.Snoopy’s Soap Box Racers is the main attraction in the Camp Snoopy expansion of the park’s Planet Snoopy kids area. The expansion also includes the Beagle Scout Acres shaded play area and the Pigpen’s Mess Hall counter-service restaurant.New menu items at Pigpen’s will include The Cheesy Mettwurst and Pigpen’s PB&J Pie, a fried peanut butter and jelly sandwich.To keep up to date with more theme park news, please sign up for Theme Park Insider’s weekly newsletter.
