The Flying Saucers was an attraction in Disneyland that ran from 1961 to 1966. The attraction was located in Tomorrowland.

It would be loosely revived as Luigi's Flying Tires in Disney California Adventure in 2012, though this attraction would end up befalling a similar fate.

About

Guests rode in personal flying saucers on a cushion of air, similar to an air hockey game, which played in a way similar to bumper cars, with guests ramming each other with their saucers.

The "table" was a large metal floor. As the ride began, large round plates would lower, and air would blast from underneath the table, pushing each saucer upward so that it was floating just above the table. Guests would control the saucers by shifting their weight from side to side.

The ride was expensive to operate, maintenance was intensive, and it did not fit the normal Disneyland "guest flow"—a relatively small number of riders was able to participate in any given day. The Flying Saucers did not survive the transition to New Tomorrowland. When New Tomorrowland opened in 1967, the space that this ride occupied was turned into the Tomorrowland Stage.
