Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure are home to a perfect mix of cutting-edge attractions and nostalgic, original rides. With tens of thousands of riders daily, Disneyland attractions will inevitably experience technical issues. But sometimes, it’s Guests that ruin the experience for everyone else.
Reddit user u/newbie1224 was waiting for Radiator Springs Racers in Cars Land when the ride shut down abruptly. “Someone jumped on to the track,” they recalled.
u/JW_Stillwater didn’t witness the incident but said the ride was down for two or three hours until the Disney Park closed.
Radiator Springs Racers is operating normally at the time of this article’s publication, and Disneyland Resort has not commented on Saturday night’s ride closure.
The most popular ride in Cars Land at Disney California Adventure, Radiator Springs Racers, is modeled after Chevrolet Test Track in EPCOT at Walt Disney World Resort. “Start your engines! Zoom through the desert landscape of Cars Land, inspired by the Disney and Pixar movie Cars,” reads the official Disneyland ride description.

“Kick the fun into overdrive as you buckle up for a road race featuring familiar car-acters, fantastic scenery and ‘wheel’ thrills. Tour Ornament Valley and arrive in Radiator Springs—the cutest little town in Carburetor County—where the movie Cars springs to life. As you prep for the big race, all the locals show up to help. Mater, Lightning McQueen, Doc Hudson, Sally, Luigi, Guido, Mack and Ramone are all rooting for you! Take a quick spin into either Luigi’s Casa Della Tires or Ramone’s House of Body Art to get a racing makeover—then hit the road.”
