Luigi's Flying Tires, presented by Alamo®

Float on a cushion of air aboard a larger-than-life tire, thanks to Luigi from the Disney·Pixar movie Cars. Slide, glide and laugh as you lift ever-so-slightly off the ground on a 9-foot-wide Fettuccini-brand tire. Your kids won't tire of Luigi's Flying Tires, presented by Alamo!

The Flying Tires

You'll quickly get the hang of soaring around Luigi's 8,000-square-foot Italian garden and tire storage yard. All you need to do is lean in the direction that you wish to move.

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 — it's almost like you're on top of a gigantic air hockey table!

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.

Luigi's Showroom

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


Luigi's Flying Tires uses a completely new, state-of-the-art 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!
