Cars Land to open on June 15 at Disney's California Adventure

Mon, 26 Mar 2012

Pixar's animated movie Cars will come to life on June 15 when Disney's California Adventure opens a real-life version of the Western desert road town of Radiator Springs.

The 12-acre attraction will feature everything from a Flo's Drive-In and a Cozy Cone to a high-speed "Radiator Springs Racers" ride with six-seat, open-topped race cars fashioned after your favorite Cars characters. The race cars operate on a track similar to the one used for the General Motors proving-ground attraction at Disney's Epcot Center in Florida.

There will be other fun things, too. Most innovative might be the Luigi's Flying Tires ride, which features bumper-type cars in the shape of tires you sit in that float over a giant air-hockey field, suspended on a cushion of jet-blasted air. Mater's Junkyard Jamboree will offer low-speed thrills as park guests ride in two- or three-seat trailers towed behind small tractors of the kind tipped over by Mater and McQueen in the original movie. Mater calls out a square-dance routine, and the tractors swing their trailers 'round and 'round in a series of textbook oversteers.

We have seen the Ornament Valley mountains of Cars Land and can attest that they do look like the real thing, down to the nose-buried 1949 to 1963 Cadillac tail fins of Cadillac Ranch near Amarillo.

Should be fun!
