Float on a cushion of air aboard an oversized tire, thanks to Luigi from the Disney•Pixar movie Cars. Your kids won't tire of Luigi's Flying Tires, presented by Alamo!

Luigi's Showroom

The fun begins before you hop aboard your flying tire. Tour Luigi's showroom and office and see his humorous collection of office supplies, mementos and photographs. Keep your eyes open for a few surprises!

How to Float on Flying Tires

Lean in the direction you wish to move—and you will soar around Luigi's 8,000-square-foot Italian garden and tire storage yard.

6,714 air vents blow over 1.86 million cubic feet of air per minute to keep your tire floating ever so slightly above the ground. This marvel of modern machinery provides a completely unique ride experience.

Each tire can accommodate up to 2 adults and 1 child, or 1 adult and 2 children.

Festival of the Flying Tires

What's the story behind the mysterious flying tires?

No one knows their secret for sure, but the tradition of the Festival of the Flying Tires dates back to the 1930s, when Luigi's Uncle Topolino ordered a shipment of the Fettuccini Tire Company's new Cuscino D' Aria tires.

To the amazement of the residents of Topolino's small Italian village, when the tires were unloaded they began to mysteriously float off the ground and gracefully move around as if they were dancing.

To celebrate this miraculous event, the villagers put up festive banners, balloons and bunting. With the addition of some traditional Italian music, the Festival of the Flying Tires was born!

Luigi and Guido wanted to share this happy memory, so they ordered a shipment of Cuscino D' Aria tires for Radiator Springs, and, just like in Italy, the tires mysteriously rose off the ground and began to dance.

Radiator Springs continues to celebrate the Festival of the Flying Tires to this day.

History

Luigi's Flying Tires uses a new ride system, but the attraction is inspired by a classic Disneyland Park attraction, Flying Saucers.

More than 5 million aspiring space explorers rode the Flying Saucers from August 6, 1961 to August 5, 1966.

Even decades later, it's still a favorite memory of many Disneyland Resort Guests—including Cars director John Lasseter.

Now, the unique experience of floating on air can be relived and shared with a whole new generation of fans!
