Cars Land: The Five Hour Line and The Balls

On Ken P. D. Snydecast #199: Penultibicentennial Dana and Ken talked about Cars Land at Disneyland.

Dana mention that there are 3 rides in the section:

From wiki:

Radiator Springs Racers — a slot car dark ride. The attraction takes guests in a six-person vehicle through a briefing with Doc and Lightning McQueen, characters from the film Cars. Suddenly, guests find themselves racing another guest vehicle through hairpin turns and steep banks, ending with a randomized race result. It is similar to Test Track at Epcot at Walt Disney World in Florida.

Mater's Junkyard Jamboree — an attraction in the style of a whip ride and the Mad Tea Party at Disneyland. The attraction is themed to Mater's Junkyard and the fields with baby tractors from the first film. Mater is the Master of Ceremonies of the Jamboree. The vehicles are tractors with pull cars attached to them that move around with the music.

Luigi's Flying Tires — an updated version of the original Disneyland attraction, Flying Saucers. This effect is achieved by large fan-like blowers shooting air up, like a giant air hockey table. Guests queue in the Casa Della Tires shop. A play area featuring a tire jungle gym, slide and kid-sized cars is located next to the attraction.

The one with the long line (and the single rider line) was Radiator Springs Racer:

The one with the balls that have been removed (tee hee, I said balls) is Luigi's Flying Tires:

The one they didn't even mention was Mater's Junkyard Jamboree.

Screw you Mater's Junkyard Jamboree, screw you.
