    Disneyland Flying Saucers

    I'm not sure how many people have seen this but I thought it was pretty cool. Here is some video of the Disneyland Flying Saucers...

    Wow! It's been many years since I've seen the saucers. Well... it was when I rode them as a kid. I really loved the ride. You had to lean to move. It's funny watching the people who just sit upright bouncing up and down. If you did it right, you could careen around pretty good. Thanks!

    I have the poster to this attraction but that's it.
    Looks/looked cool, though.

    You can see it in action, during its opening day, during the Disneyland 10th anniversary show in the Disney Treasures Disneyland DVD.

    That took a while to load, but it was worth it. It's surprising that more of the guests didn't figure out how to make the saucers move about.

    I know they look really silly moving around wondering how to move the saucers!

    I love BoingBoing! Cory, Mark, Zeni and David are really swell people... I remember when this was originally posted there. Any other BB fans around?

    Ladies and Gentleman, the worlds biggest air hockey game! lol

    I remember the Flying Saucers vividly, if only because they were shut down the year I would've been big enough to ride a saucer by myself. Oh the trauma of it all!!!

    Guilty as charged...BB is one of my biggest time sinks. In a response to my fan letter about how awesome Down & Out in the Magic Kingdom is, Cory told me that at one point in the early '90s his only form of photo ID was a DL AP. So, he's one of us

    It was really that dull. And they broke a lot, making it difficult to either stay in the air or move or steer.

    Really cool! Thanks for the link BC. I thought I remember reading somewhere about the ride shutting down from the airflow in rainy conditions would do some strange things.
