The Coolest Ride in Disneyland – 1961

saucer_ride_1961

 

I remember this ride well. Functioning much like the air-hockey games you see in movie theatres and arcades, the blue plastic floor would release air as the little saucers glided over it – they were steered  by shifting your weight. Unfortunately this ride only lasted about 5 years, probably due to the risk of injury or litigation. [Even in 1961, California had 29 attorneys per capita.]

The Old Wolf has spoken.
