The first sight guests encounter in Cars Land is a perky ride inspired by Mater, the good ol' boy tow truck in Cars. Mater's Junkyard Jamboree features vehicles pulled by baby tractors and mimics The Whip, a classic ride that has all but disappeared from amusement parks.

Like its antecedent, riders experience whipping sensations. Unlike The Whip, which typically featured vehicles arranged around a large oval and only delivered its fishtailing thrills at the two far ends of the oval, the Junkyard Jamboree is arranged as a series of interlocking circles that spin in alternate directions and move the vehicles all around the ride platform. It doles out its surprisingly potent whips -- don't worry it's much more fun than thrilling -- at a rapid pace and in both directions as the tractors move to and fro.

The ride is presented as a square dance with Mater acting as the caller. He sings a series of original, extremely silly songs, interspersed with even sillier jokes.

The minimum height for the Junkyard Jamboree is 32".
