Drive yourself buggy as you bump into others under the circus tent at P.T. Flea's circus. The acrobatic Tuck & Roll from Disney-Pixar's A Bug's Life put on quite a show while you are along for the ride.

P.T. Flea welcomes you to his flea circus! While it might be the shabbiest show in town, the lovable Hungarian pill bugs, Tuck & Roll, are here to take you on one of the "bumpiest" rides of your life.

Climb into a pill bug and steer your way around the track that winds under the sprawling big top. As you drive counter-clockwise around the pole, listen to Tuck & Roll chatter away incomprehensibly. What in the world are they saying? Maybe you can be the first to figure it out!

You'll drive around slowly, crashing into other bugs, for 1 minute and 30 seconds. There are usually 15 buggies running per ride cycle, with up to two riders per buggie. Riders are encouraged to move counter-clockwise. A thick padded lap bar keeps you in place. The steering wheel and gas pedal are on the right. There is no brake: slow down by taking pressure off the gas pedal.

Touring Tips

  • The wait for this attraction tends to be under 10 minutes. Wait times more than 15 minutes are rare.
  • These bumper cars are far milder than anything you'll find at your local county fair, hardly achieving speeds sufficient to allow impact. Young children, though, will hardly know the difference and their disappointment will likely be the shortness of the time allowed for running into each other.
  • Guests will drive into each other at a slow speed but this might scare some children.
  • The queue is wheelchair/ECV accessible, but guests using ECVS must transfer to the vehicle. Guests in wheelchairs may remain in their chair and board a specially designed vehicle. Getting in and out of the car may be difficult for those with back, leg, or knee problems. Expectant mothers should not ride.
  • The closest restroom is next to Flik's Fliers - in a "tissue box"!
  • Flik and Atta make appearances in front of the attraction It's Tough to be a Bug in a bug's land.


  • While Heimlich, Flik, and Francis welcome guests and offer safety advice for their own attractions, P.T. Flea does the talking for Tuck and Roll.
  • Changes were made to the attraction to increase the speed of the buggies which moved exceptionally slowly when it first opened.
