Mater's Junkyard Jamboree

Another family flat ride in Disney California Adventure's Cars Land expansion is ready for testing.Just after the beginning of testing on Luigi’s Flying Tires, Disney announced that testing had begun on Mater’s Junkyard Jamboree, one of the attractions in the new land at Disney California Adventure.

The attraction, which will be set to a number of songs sung by the film’s comedic character Mater, will see guests sitting in trailers pulled by "baby tractors" and spinning on turntables, effortlessly transferring between rotating platforms and whipping around corners in a truly chaotically-choreographed hoe-down.

The ride combines the experience of Disneyland’s Mad Tea Party with the rotating, fast-paced motions of classic whip rides. Mater’s Junkyard Jamboree uses a ride system very similar to the smaller Francis’ Ladybug Boogie in the park’s “a bugs land” section.

Mater’s Junkyard Jamboree, along with the rest of Cars Land, is due to open in Summer 2012 as the culmination of Disney California Adventure’s $1.1 billion renovation.
