A Vekoma junior coaster, the same model as Goofy’s Barnstormer at the Magic Kingdom. The ride is relatively gentle and short, less than a minute, making it an ideal first coaster for a young thrill seeker in training.


Woody Woodpecker's Nuthouse Coaster is a family-friendly ride through the trees and a nut factory with your pal Woody. I adore this little roller coaster. This is a "kids" roller coaster that adults will love. My only complaint is that it's sooooo short. If you don't have an express pass, you can ride this with your eyes closed and pretend you're on Flight of the Hippogriff which is superior in both theming, duration, and views. However, I have great memories riding this at night underneath the moon and it was perfect weather and the whole area feels like my childhood, and I can't help but just love that whole experience which it was I love this. The theming is also nice because it's classic Woody Woodpecker so kids and adults will love it. While the roller coaster fanatics might turn up their noses at this, I think it's an average kiddie coaster. 5/10
Great first coaster for the young ones in your life. Not all rides have to be all things to everyone. This ride gives kids who are yearning to ride a coaster, but not sure they are ready for it a perfect chance to try it out. It's a great "gateway drug" for future coasterholics.
Short and it is not fun. I like the barnstormer at magic kingdom way better.
