Mater's Junkyard Jamboree

Mater's Junkyard Jamboree

An Attraction in California Adventure

Last updated: September 28, 2023

At a Glance

On the outskirts of town sits the junkyard home of Mater, the redneck tow truck voiced by Larry the Cable Guy. In his yard sit 22 baby tractors, each towing an open-air twoseater trailer. While Mater’s voice emerges from a jury-rigged jukebox singing one of seven specially composed square-dancing tunes (plus one hilarious hidden song that plays only once per hour), the tractors travel in overlapping figure eight patterns along interlocking turntables. The vehicles are transferred from one revolving turntable to another, creating nearmiss moments. Mater’s trailers swing freely from side to side, creating a centripetal snapping sensation similar to vintage whip carnival rides. Mater’s may look like a simple kiddie ride, but it supplies an unexpected kick that draws us back for repeated spins. This London, Ontario, dad echoed our assessment:

Mater’s Junkyard Jamboree was surprisingly good. It doesn’t look like much, but you have to ride it. We saw a woman lose her sunglasses because she wasn’t prepared for how it swings around. The mechanically inclined adults exiting the ride were impressed with the engineering that allowed for the figure eight movement.

During the Halloween season the ride transforms in to Mater's Graveyard Jamboree, featuring playfully spooky decorations and a new set of songs, such as, "Welcome to Radiator Screams." For the Holiday Season, it becomes Mater's Jingle Jamboree.

Mater is the breakout hit character of the Cars franchise, and his namesake ride is visually attractive but slow-loading. Still, it typically has the shortest queue of the three Cars Land attractions.
