Luigi’s Rollickin’ Roadsters Cars Land Disney California Adventure
Introduction | Attraction | Touring Tips | Kids/Characters | Dining | Shopping | Interesting Facts
Luigi’s cousins from Carsoli, Italy are visiting him in Radiator Springs. To celebrate Race Day, they demonstrate some of the tradiitional dances of their village at the Casa della Tires in Luigi’s Rollickin’ Roadsters.
Guests ride in one of the cars. The bench seat will accommodate up to two adults, secured by a single lap belt.
This attraction uses a trackless vehicle system – the cars are independent units that whirl and spin around each other as they traverse the dance floor. The cars can move in all directions, they also spin around and move side-to-side. Each ride is different: there are 18 different paths for them to follow, and they will switch paths on every ride. Sometimes they dance in formation, and sometimes with each other. In addition, each car has its own signature moves and there are also variations depending on which song is playing. There’s lots of honking.
Riders have no control over the vehicles.
There are twenty “cousins”, all with different colors, paint styles, and accessories. Each is unique. Note the mustache grills on the “men”. Up to sixteen are on the dance floor at any given time.
The ride is about 90 seconds long.
The first part of the queue is inside the Casa della Tires showroom, where there are lots of Fettuccini tires on display. The outdoor part of the queue is mostly shaded and winds around a garden area.
The attraction features five different songs, some sung by Luigi, some by the cousins. They include “Rollicking Night and Day”, “Mambo Italiano”, and “The Tire-antella”.
