Mater's Junkyard Jamboree is a whip spinner ride in Cars Land - you will ride in small trailers behind Mater's tractors, who will turn in a circle, gently whipping you around the junkyard, while your listen to one of six new songs, crooned by the voice of Mater just for this ride.
This was actually really impressive for a carnival spinner. I thought it was great.
I love this ride. The spinning and whipping is as blast!
This game seems to be very for kids only, but when sitting on it, you realize the true speed, giving fun times
This take on the traditional whip ride is actually a very good family attraction. The ambiance of the ride is great, the songs a lot of fun, and the motion of the whip is exciting but not forceful enough to cause anyone to lose their lunch (or dinner, for that matter). I was also impressed by the number of ride vehicles, turning a typically slow loading attraction into a real people eater. While not worth a long wait, Mater's Junkyard Jamboree is a fun diversion for the whole family.
I rate it as fair because the kids enjoyed it so much. Low on thrills, but a good, fun idea.
I'd consider this to be DCA's counterpart to Disneyland's Mad Tea Party. Like that ride, this feels like a pretty common off-the-shelf twister ride system, but good theme and even better music bring it up to standards.
