    Seems like the beach balls were a disappointment that you DIDN’T have anything specific to do with them:
    My first thought was the old Buzz Lightyear bumper-car dodgeball from DisneyQuest (which took a little practice and needed two people, but was fun once you got the hang of it)–If tire fans were asked to play a sort of disorganized soccer World Cup, having to get the beach balls into “goals” while having fun floating around, now -that- would be an attraction. 🙂
    (The “aimless” idea is nice, but just picture what Toy Story Mania would be like if they said “Just have fun shooting at anything you like…”)

    Good. I no longer have to endure weird looks from people when I tell them I went on a Carsland ride and took some balls to the face.

    I was just at cars land the other day. I took one look at the ride without the beach balls and said no way would I wait 65 minutes for that. Many tires were stuck in the corner and couldn’t move because of the other tires in the way. I was there on opening day and had fun on the ride with the beach balls, but now, I won’t wait over 30 minutes for it.

    i work here. and we removed the beach balls because there were numerous incident reports on people getting hit with them in the face. there has even been an incident of someone getting hospitalized and having a “concussion.” While I doubt that their complaint is actually true, we most comply with what is reported, and especially need to be careful of people like that looking to sue the company for our safety regulations. so better to be safe, than go through lawsuits on lawsuits. the ride has only been open a few months and has had more incident reports than most attractions. we do, however, know that disney is brainstorming possibly increasing the pace of the movement of the tires, and providing ONE solitary huge beach ball. it’s all still in the works. you heard it here from a cast member! 🙂
