The stunt driving in Lights, Motors, Action! Extreme Stunt Show is simply amazing, with drivers executing a show full of choreographed 180- and 360-degree spins, two wheels and jumps – often in the midst of controlled explosions that guests can feel in their seats.

We love taking you behind-the-scenes at our attractions and this video was an absolute blast to create. In it, stunt drivers Eduardo Marques, Jr., Mike Sawyer and Kial Butler tell us what they love about performing in the show and even take us for a spin inside the car. Check it out!

  • Great video! This is one of my favorite shows to photograph. Lots of action 🙂

  • We love this Stunt Show!! we waited a few years to see it after the opening because of the high popularity back then. We saw it for the first time when we visited two summers ago for our wedding and the 24 of us (all first tim viewers) thought it was one of the best shows in disney. We loved that mater and lightening mcqueen made a special appearance. We hope they will be there when we visit again this fall. Would recommend this show to anyone!!!!

    • I’ve always liked the show – and I’m an even bigger fan now. Wow, the stunt crew is talented!!

  • I experienced the stunt show for the first time this past December, and I was very impressed. To me, it seemed to hearken back to the unspoken mission statement of Disney’s Hollywood Studios- “This is how movies are made.” Too often now it seems that much of the park is now “This is entertainment that is popular”; not necessarily a bad thing, mind you, as we’ve gotten some INCREDIBLE attractions that way (like the Aerosmith Rock’n’Roller Coaster). Still, it’s nice to learn something in addition to having fun.
