    I have inner ear issues too that causes me vertigo once in a while. Mater doesn't bother be. If i were experiencing a vertigo episode i wouldn't go on it though. It whips you back and forth pretty good.

    No, it isn't like the Teacups. I have issues when it comes to spinning as well, but Mater's is totally fine. It's a double figure-8 shape, so you aren't ever really spinning in a full circle. You're more weaving through and around the turntables.

    Agree, you really feel Mater's presence, if that makes sense. They were going to go with an animatronic Mater DJ, but it got cut, even so I really love the ride and it's totally worth the wait.

    It's a great family ride. And those whips pack a punch. You can feel all that stored energy ready to let loose on the whips.

    It's no E ticket, but it's more fun than it looks! I'll go on it with the wife if the wait is 20 mins or less.

    And see if you can find the hidden mickey in the queue.

    Half the fun is listening to the music of the ride while you wait in line. I dare you to not be hooked on it by the end.

    We went on Mater's once and and on Luigi's once and that was enough for us. We love Radiator Springs and Cars Land overall but those two rides just don't cut it for us.

    It's great... one of the rides that's a lot more fun than it looks. (also the queue is really good, if you've seen the Mater's Tall Tales series of shorts...)

    Re: Cars Land Mater's Ride

    I'm late to the party, but wanted to add in my two cents:

    My husband and I had been skipping this ride up until a month or two ago because we thought it was a "kid ride".

    Now we go on it EVERY trip! It's a blast!

    Thank you to Poisonedapples for my awesome signature!
