Disney California Adventure Park is already changing Luigi's Flying Tires.
The Cars Land attraction, in which visitors float on tire-shaped vehicles similar to bumper cars on an air-hockey table, is undergoing major changes just two months after it opened with the park's massive makeover.
Disney California Adventure park guests fly around and throw beach balls on Luigi's Flying Tires. Disney recently removed gigantic beach balls that guests had tossed to one another as they floated along on the Flying Tires.
Over the next three weeks, Cast Members will remove weight from the undercarriages of the Flying Tires and this should increase the speed.
Originally, the Flying Tires were to have joysticks, but it confused guests during testing. Still, the spin-control infrastructure remain below, weighing anout 20 pounds. The removal of that infrastructure is under way and should be done by September. The Flying Tires attraction will not be shut down.
About 90% of surveyed guests have said they would return to Cars Land. However, Luigi's Flying Tires has ranked as the least popular of the Three Cars Land attractions.
The beach balls were added to Luidi's shortly before it opened as a way to give the attraction a more festive look, as well as added fun for guests.
But wait times lagged, often lasting an hour or more, usually because guests slowed down to pick up the balls as they were getting aboard.
I have not taken a ride on this attraction, however, I want to...Dr Lee
