    These two junkyard C-Tickets look awful. The more I see of Carsland the more I hate it. Of all the areas in the park so far the 1920s Los Angeles area has the most promise.

    the trackless system is being saved for something else...............soon

    Gosh, I could not disagree with you more.

    These C Tickets, that every park needs to offer as not everything can be a Mega-Budget E Ticket Extravaganza, are really impressive. They seem to be unique, hyper themed, fun, whimsical, sophisticated, and yet fun for everyone all at the same time.

    The more info, details and sketches that leak out about the Cars Land area, the better and better it looks.

    I had thought the Roamin' Tires flying saucer ride was going to be the sleeper hit of the park, but now this Tow Mater ride-through outdoor spinner is looking very fun too.

    These are clearly not off-the-shelf carnival rides. DCA opened with some truly underwhelming and cheap C Tickets that were barely themed; Orange Stinger, Maliboomer, Jellyfish, etc.

    The Cars Land C Tickets are a radical departure from that Pressler mindset, and they look extremely clever and fun. I can't wait!

    I value the lesser ticket attractions as well. The reason I'm not fond of these two rides is because they do in fact look like junkyards. It just doesn't seem like an appealing setting to me.

    Carnivals, junkyards, empty Hollywood sound stages.

    None of it really sounds appealing, does it?


    I'm just hoping the DCA remake turns out to be worthwhile... But I have to agree most of what I've seen for Cars Land is uninspiring.

    I'm hoping Radiator Springs Racers really blows us away with the rockwork and the landscaping. I've always been fond of rocky desert settings.

    Luigi's Roamin' Tires reportedly will utilize an updated version of the technology used in the old Flying Saucers attraction from Disneyland's Tomorrowland.

    Not familiar with the Flying Saucers? Check them out at Yesterland.

    The concept, however, is now reportedly being scrutinized by Team Disney Anaheim's budget folks because the ride system was faulty and costly in the 60s, and with today's heaver guests riding an attraction like this, its a concern whether this ride will be functional enough to handle the abundance of plus-sized American riders.

    It's certainly not a new idea, but I think it'll still be well accepted if they can make it work properly...

    IIRC the big problem was every time the ride was shut down for loading and unloading all the valves dropped open. And restarting meant turning the fans up full blast till all the valves started slamming shut rather noisily.

    They partially solved it by sweeping all the cars to one side for loading and only turning the air off in the load section, but I'll bet they can come up with an actuator to close the valves when the ride stops.

    Handling large riders is more a factor of saucer design and operating air pressures - they can do heavy lift, just look at the USMC LCAC Hovercraft. The trick is in regulating the pressure to cars with lighter riders on them, without letting them get going too fast - and that's what might kill the project.

    Re: Disney's California Adventure Project Tracker



    Our big news today revolves around Cars Land over at Disney's California Adventure, opening in 2012. The first attraction, Mater's Junkyard Jamboree, will be a whipsaw C-ticket attraction. Basically, it is an enhanced version of the tea cups, following a track through a bunch of scenes. Along their journey, riders will encounter: a magnetized crane, a junked audio tunnel, a battery sparker, a leaning shack, a tire arch, and engine steam and smoke. A play area near the main entrance will feature an interactive junkyard for kids filled with noisemaking hubcaps and horns.



    The next attraction, Luigi's Roamin' Tires, is an updated version of the short-live Flying Saucers in Disneyland's old Tomorrowland. Riders of this C-ticket attraction will be able to steer big-rig truck tires through towers of stacked tires. A play area for children wil be located in front of the attraction, and the queue will take guests through the Casa Della Tires shop where Guido will be hard at work



    Based off of Test Track at Epcot, Radiator Springs Racers will be an indoor dark ride, combining a leisurely dark prelude with a dual-race to the finish line at the end of the ride. The ride includes: switchbacks, tunnels, bridges, waterfalls, buttes, and banked turns.

    Wonderful! Thank you so much for sharing! I loved the detailed info on Mater' ride. I had no idea how it was. It almost sounds like Roger Rabbit's Cartoon Spin.
