Disney's California Adventure

California Screamin'

California Screamin' is a must do roller coaster in Paradise Pier and one of the best attractions at Disney's California Adventure. The minimum height to ride is 48 inches.

This steel coaster (built to look wooden) offers up a 0-55 launch in four seconds, a 107-foot drop and a vertical loop around a Mickey Mouse logo. You'll also hear "surf guitar" music through an on-board soundtrack, a la "Space Mountain."

This coaster currently has a maximum of 5 cars running at one time.

An on-ride camera lets guests take home a picture of their screaming on the ride.

For a limited time in January 2007, to help increase attendance, the audio track for California Screamin' was temporarily replaced with a remix of the Red Hot Chili Peppers' "Around the World," and the attraction was renamed Rockin' California Screamin'. This was promoted with Rockin' Space Mountain, a similar change made to Space Mountain in Disneyland. These changes were part of the "Rockin' Both Parks" campaign.

Disney can built a great grown-up roller coaster and this is it. I could ride it many times and the scenery of the park and the soundtrack make it even better. If you can plan a ride while the Disneyland fireworks are going off, it's even better.
