πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ Toph I knew it was gonna happen. Dave will be a sad banana though! - Mrsblue  693.1 #284 7:13PM
Terrorists indeed. - BCC  4783.2 #27 7:42PM
I am a sad MWer. I wonder if we can sneak them in like at dodger games - Villescas8  606.9 #336 7:58PM
as time went on those things were filthy...all the lil snot nosed hands on em😝 - toph  2418.2 #60 8:00PM

Those were H1N1 balls filled with air 😷😷😷 - Dahulagirl  1055.6 #172 8:11PM

Wonder what kind of attraction Disney will replace it with? - ScooterMike  1963.0 #83 4:24PM
Sooo true... - BambooMike  133.8 #2982 5:25PM
Might as well bring back the Maliboomer - ScubaSteve028  835.7 #220 5:30PM
At least we have Maters Junkyard Jamboree. - ScooterMike  1963.0 #83 5:46PM
The overdue beer garden? - BCC  4783.2 #27 7:41PM
Beer garden would be nice. Perhaps some local microbrews. - ScooterMike  1963.0 #83 8:01PM
They need to make the tires smaller, about the same size as the old flying saucers and it will work better. - splashphotoCM  885.6 #206 9:58PM
Someone was asking for a hookah lounge awhile back. Maybe he will get his wish ! - Missshelly  698.3 #277 10:44PM
I asked a cast member about the balls being gone, they said to many people got injuries and many broke there glasses and stuff of that nature then they did a trial with the balls just on the floor and people still complained. What wusses! Lol jk. 😜 - AndieHawkins  365.4 #624 6:25PM
I agree with u they are wusses people complain way too much - princessVanessa  384.3 #585 6:39PM
If guests got hurt from them, they will be gone. Safety is always and will always be the top priority - BaseballMickey_CM  7581.2 #11 6:42PM
@BBMCM exactly - dlmickeymouseCM  2405.8 #62 7:07PM
How about blame the jerks who abused them and HIT people in the face on purpose. I almost threw down with some πŸ΄πŸ”΄ on there for spiking a ball into my face on purpose. He's lucky it hit me and not my daughter. - Mrsblue  693.1 #284 7:14PM
Yeah... it's unfortunate. I rather have Red's water back. Water never hurt anyone... WOC, or GRR ANYONE?! - BCC  4783.2 #27 7:41PM
They should just leave the air jets on and get rid of the hovering tires, to let people walk through there and cool off... - BambooMike  133.8 #2982 5:55PM
I remember way back when this attraction had balls! I feel so old!! - davetyee  331.7 #737 5:32PM
Lol me too! - LoveDisneyDucklings  28.9 #6110 6:08PM
You could have all the oversized beach balls in the world and the attraction would still be boring! That is why the balls we added after testing, to try and liven it up... It did not work out so well. But look on the bright side, when it gets shuttered Luigi's Flying Tires can be on display at Mater's Junkyard Jamboree! This same concept was already tried in 1961 at the Tommrand Terrace "Flying Sauscer" ride which closed 4 years latter. Some time even the best Disney imagineering forget to read up on Disney history? - Elfie  106.8 #3485 5:48PM
You know everything! - Mrsblue  693.1 #284 7:15PM
Except how to spell! - Romec123aKaSmartyPants  751.8 #251 7:37PM
That's true - Mrsblue  693.1 #284 7:40PM
Saw them repaint the walls over and over again. - BCC  4783.2 #27 7:40PM
I knew that attraction looked familiar. When I went to the Disney Family Museum in SF, they have a huge replica of the park, and there was a ride that looked exactly like Luigi's. Thanks Elfie! I knew I wasn't imagining things. =) - iloveprinceEric  264.4 #1221 7:41PM
The very beloved "Flying Saucers" were fast and the beach balls small. If you didn't lean to move the saucer would hop on the air and at times some tipped over. Bring the fast back. - starleet  59.5 #4448 8:35PM
took me 1 ride to get the hang of it, and 1 ride to realize it really was fun. too bad complainers know how to ruin the fun. It's DISNEYLAND, people need to learn to lighten up and just have fun. I predict this will last about a year before they decide to replace it with something else... - Mandathewitch  355.6 #660 6:58PM
That stinks. We didn't even get to ride with them yet. I was really looking forward to it. I think we should start a petition to bring them back. - MikeyMouse  145.1 #2793 7:06PM
That's the problem in America. Stupid people are allowed to procreate. Then they don't teach their kids how to act when in public, and they ruin it for everyone. - LittleAprilShowers  587.1 #345 7:27PM
Not just America... Would have been nice to see this once live. - proudcanuck  478.6 #445 7:28PM
@las preach on lady!!! - CourtyAstroBlisters  784.0 #236 7:33PM
I thought the balls were fun...but I admit I would have been super mad if someone hit me in the face on purpose or even worse one of my kids...! - MinnieMousewife  914.1 #201 9:45PM
I hear you!! - adisneyfamily  1003.9 #187 10:14PM
Soooo what are we supposed to do with no balls?😞 - loved26LovesDLand  189.7 #2121 4:27PM
Conversate. Have a cup of tea. - ScubaSteve028  835.7 #220 4:32PM
OMG I hate "conversate" with a passion! - cesium55  531.8 #390 9:41PM
I'm now legitimately upset that I didn't go on this ride when the balls were there. I really wanted to play with Luigi's balls :( - Slotherini  1079.8 #169 4:42PM
Me too :( - annjay07  170.5 #2400 5:27PM
Same - potatohead25  706.5 #273 7:24PM
Same here! Is the ride even fun now? - CinderellasMom  264.5 #1220 7:25PM
ZeeAlice know this? - Romec123aKaSmartyPants  751.8 #251 8:07PM
Now the question is..... What did they do with the balls??? Where are they keeping them and who do we need to bribe to get em out!!! - iloveprinceEric  264.4 #1221 4:50PM
Maybe they'll sell them at Company D ;) - iamdugsmaster  878.7 #208 5:18PM
Or they'll magically be a RAK one day. Yeah yeah I know it's not a RAK if you ask. =) LOL - iloveprinceEric  264.4 #1221 7:44PM
UserName up for grabs: LuigisLostBalls - misschurro  6361.5 #17 9:18PM
Now I'll have to wear a dress to get some excitement there..😜 - MarshaMouse  5036.0 #25 10:39PM
Ha! Totally just pictured a Marilyn Monroe moment. - LittleAprilShowers  587.1 #345 10:49PM
Uh, my plastic surgeon said that I couldn't participate in an activity where balls are flying at my nose.... - Sharkgrrl19  255.2 #1299 11:32PM
YES!! Love that movie :D - DownTheRabbitHole  310.2 #856 11:52PM
Ehhh. Just use imaginary beach balls. - Tomorrowland  98.9 #3610 11:45PM
I can only blame myself.. - CptKirk  766.3 #245 12:24AM
I think we should arrange a mass MWer protest in front of City Hall. Get all the news channels to support us. Also the Presidential candidates need to tell us where they stand on the Balls or No Balls Issue. - radiatorsprings  272.6 #1146 7:49AM
This is a sad day in History for Luigi's. - Armenda  1159.7 #152 4:18PM
Bummer, I had such a memorable flight with those balls and my sister wife. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ - bluefairy  643.8 #313 4:19PM
I would think it would be really hard to share balls with a sister wife. - LittleAprilShowers  587.1 #345 7:39PM
That's why I smacked it out of her hands. 😁 - bluefairy  643.8 #313 11:40PM
😠 grrrrr arrrgggggghhhhh πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ - veronica619  517.7 #404 11:54PM
"you're meeeeeean!!!!" πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ - bluefairy  643.8 #313 6:41PM
Wow! Looks desolate... yesterday there were only a few of the large balls left on the ride.. Aww, the ride looks sad now. - Goofdog  170.4 #2404 4:20PM
Boo no balls!!! I spy your mom floating there!! Stay cool!! - Willierose  2348.6 #67 4:20PM
She says hi! =] - AndieHawkins  365.4 #624 6:20PM
RIP to Luigis Phun Balls! - PrinceTeaJack  934.6 #198 4:20PM
They should use smaller balls - Rob512  756.3 #249 4:24PM
What's the point of this ride now D: - Jenniferr  506.7 #418 4:26PM
It was bound to happen. Sorry to see them go, they helped to make some great pictures. - Linzee  1188.1 #146 4:27PM
So it's like bumper cars now??? I wonder how fast you can plow into someone??? - iloveprinceEric  264.4 #1221 4:27PM
pretty fast if you start from across the floor. :) - Goofy4Art  203.8 #1955 5:14PM
i wonder how many guests will now feel inadequate without them. :/ - nicoleface  1752.6 #96 4:34PM
sad day! - NethBeeyore  470.5 #459 4:36PM
This thread is full of Win. - fabian777  275.6 #1103 4:37PM
The ride seems silly without them! - jariel  178.9 #2265 4:46PM
Will I get escorted out if I smuggle some balls in? - Roto  245.6 #1406 5:12PM
Boo. I never had balls. - PrincessDuckie  904.9 #202 5:15PM
I'm glad I got to experience you one time, dear balls. You will be missed. - aidensmama  340.3 #704 5:17PM
Boo. We loved the balls. - klterzian  5.5 #17284 5:24PM
sad day - misschurro  6361.5 #17 5:25PM
Boo wonder why? We were looking for them this morning ;( glad we were able to get those in pictures last month - Dfans4evea  75.5 #4035 5:30PM
Aww man, I didn't even get around to riding it yet! Doesn't look a fun with out the balls.. :/ - RomyVentura  170.1 #2409 5:34PM
I'm just glad I got to play with the balls one time..They will be missed. - Sharkgrrl19  255.2 #1299 5:35PM
It just got even worst. The fun is gone! - Goofy24  174.0 #2335 5:48PM
I am in minority, but the balls were always annoying to me. People were to busy worried about the balls than trying to move the tire. I could actually get the tire to go pretty fast when I just ignored the balls. - BillE  473.9 #450 5:50PM
Hard to ignore Luigi's balls! They're so big! - davetyee  331.7 #737 5:56PM
That was the entire reason to ride it - timbo426  144.9 #2796 5:53PM
I enjoyed beaning my family in the heads with the balls. But I might be the minority...... - leftmyheartinwonderland  359.9 #644 5:55PM
Nope. I was beaning strangers last night, though. Kind of awkward. - FantasmicFan82  195.0 #2059 6:00PM
I was too scared to hit total strangers. But that didn't stop total strangers from hitting me. All in good fun I guess but unfortunately some people don't see it that way. - leftmyheartinwonderland  359.9 #644 6:08PM
Without the beach balls, what's the point?!? So very sad! The beach balls made the attraction. Maybe it was just too hot for the beach balls? - MoonWillow  381.3 #589 6:11PM
59 days. tisk.tisk. - misschurro  6361.5 #17 6:13PM
Yep. I was wondering how long it was going to take - melissa_ficent  318.6 #809 6:34PM
redonk. - misschurro  6361.5 #17 6:49PM
dagnabbit I knew I should of went on before I left. - MissBunny  231.8 #1584 6:18PM
Nooo! I wish I had the chance to ride it with them! I get the reasoning but still. I wonder if they can put up a disclaimer or something before people ride it. - Amanda Beth  301.7 #900 7:16PM
is that a Yesterland record? - camplkc  4.8 #19667 7:18PM
Red's water was removed 2 weeks in. That's a record. - BCC  4783.2 #27 7:34PM
So now is it just like bumper cars? Didn't get to experience it before they took them away :/ - disneykimmi  117.0 #3284 7:23PM
No words just a sad sigh - MarshaMouse  5036.0 #25 7:26PM
Sorry I'm the only buzz kill here but people focus more on the complainers and less to the fact that a lot of people got carried away with the force with which they throw. Small children ride the tires some aren't able to fight off the balls. There are some older folks, who yes are fragile, does that mean they shouldn't enjoy the same rides as everyone else. I don't believe Disney imagineers pride themselves on making attractions only for those who are able to handle the rides without modifications. Yeah maybe we do live in a society of whiners and complainers but we also live in a society that should provide equality. Disneyland is the only place I can think of where most everyone is able to enjoy almost everything that is offered. JMHO. 😊 - Romec123aKaSmartyPants  751.8 #251 7:27PM
Your still mad about me blasting you in the face with the ball aren't you. - donnievegas  1132.7 #160 7:33PM
I got hit in the head pretty hard and I was pretty pissed... But I didn't care because that's the nature of the ride. Some people just don't know how to have fun. - BCC  4783.2 #27 7:34PM
BCC your a young adult. When you have small kids or your elderly parents throw a ball at them and let me know what happens. lol - Romec123aKaSmartyPants  751.8 #251 7:35PM
It's not the nature of the ride to hurt someone. - Mrsblue  693.1 #284 7:37PM
I'd be irate lol. - BCC  4783.2 #27 7:38PM
My position really is... "It was going to happen eventually. I'm surprised it lasted till the end of summer." - BCC  4783.2 #27 7:38PM
@spr, I don't blame the elderly or young at all. I just think it's sad that some morons actually thought it was ok to pummel them in the first place. - LittleAprilShowers  587.1 #345 7:41PM
I wonder if Disney knows that hurting people is the nature of the ride or that it's CM endorsed to do so? - Mrsblue  693.1 #284 7:41PM
No Donnie, I'm like a panther when you least expect it I'll pounce! - Romec123aKaSmartyPants  751.8 #251 7:44PM
I wouldn't want anyone's balls in my face. Especially if they are putting them there forcibly. - fabian777  275.6 #1103 8:02PM
Awww man! I didn't even get to ride before they took them out 😞 - LBChica  2437.4 #59 7:31PM
Me either :( Just missed 'em by 42 days! - GibsonGirl87  462.3 #470 7:35PM
Me neither :/ - Addiction  55.3 #4566 7:39PM
Me either. My daughter opted to ride RSR instead. - joyfulmomma  248.5 #1373 8:26PM
The balls are retired ! - snakeinmyboot40  394.0 #571 7:35PM
Glad we got to ride it before they took them out. Now it's just slow, air powered bumper cars. - Firelt  236.3 #1515 7:42PM
I'm bringing my own dark beach ball in January. Haters gonna hate - KylaShea  632.7 #319 7:44PM
I should've played the odds in Las Vegas on this one. When I first saw those balls I told everyone they would be gone within 90 days. It didn't even take that long! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ - Dahulagirl  1055.6 #172 8:05PM
There's a cheerful face!! Glad to see you in the lounge Dahula. Hope you are feeling well! - Mimmy  1442.3 #118 8:28PM

I didn't get to experience balls to the face /: - sleepyhead_CM  596.5 #341 9:22PM
oh my o_O - ScarfGirl  644.8 #312 9:37PM
So sad. Missed the balls by 2 days. - Jewelz  557.9 #363 9:27PM
Come on everybody, be brave, no more ballin' - Melody_CM  13474.2 #3 10:26PM
How sad! Glad I got to ride last night while a few balls were still present! - DownTheRabbitHole  310.2 #856 11:10PM
I don't think this ride will last without those beach balls. So sad:( - MickeyMouse0312  56.4 #4527 12:12AM
I think they should just make the tires into bumper cars. - MickeyMouse0312  56.4 #4527 12:14AM
Noooooooo!!!!! I never got to ride it! Can I bring my own beach ball and bring it on the ride with me?!? Hahaha. - Flyingtoneverland  188.1 #2148 12:14AM
Looks plain Jane now. :o( - MomWithAJuiceBoxBuzz  1190.7 #145 6:47PM
:( that made me sad - - MouseketeerforShort  340.3 #703 7:01PM
Won't be getting on this any more - HanLostLeia  1098.3 #165 7:20PM
Don't worry about the balls... Soon guests will start to complain about getting bumped and they will shutdown the entire ride and remove it...Just like the Flying Saucers. - radiatorsprings  272.6 #1146 7:47AM
Glad we got one chance to ride with the balls just before they left. We went on 8/10 and they were still there. - heather77  362.7 #635 8:24AM
