Luigi’s Flying Tires | Disneyland Description
Luigi’s Flying Tires was a ride located in Cars Land at Disneyland Park in Anaheim, California. The ride was inspired by the animated Disney-Pixar movie, Cars, and allowed guests to ride on flying tires that floated on a cushion of air.
The ride was a modern-day version of a classic attraction from Disneyland’s early days, the Flying Saucers, which operated from 1961 to 1966. Luigi’s Flying Tires opened in 2012 as part of the grand opening of Cars Land, and quickly became a popular attraction among guests.
To ride Luigi’s Flying Tires, guests would climb aboard large, round tires and use their body movements to control their direction and speed. The tires floated on a cushion of air, allowing riders to glide across the surface of the ride. The attraction also featured a playful Italian-themed soundtrack and colorful theming that was inspired by the Cars movies.
Luigi’s Flying Tires closed in 2015 and was replaced by a new ride, Luigi’s Rollickin’ Roadsters, which also features Luigi and his friends from the Cars movies. The new ride uses a similar ride system, but features small cars that move and dance to a fun Italian-themed soundtrack.
