The Disneyland Resort has revealed more detail about the new show scenes it will feature on the Incredicoaster when the revamped California Screamin' coaster debuts as part of Pixar Pier in Disney California Adventure next month.
I was invited to take a Virtual Reality ride on the Incredicoaster at Walt Disney Imagineering earlier this year, under the condition that I not reveal some of the details in the ride, so it's nice to be able finally to share them with Theme Park Insider readers.

The concept is that the Parr family's hometown of Municiberg are re-dedicating the city's roller coaster as the Incredicoaster in honor of The Incredibles. The superhero family is getting ready to ride, but Jack-Jack and Edna Mode have to sit out... because, height requirements. No worries — Edna will just watch Jack Jack in the VIP lounge, and what could possibly go wrong?
Yep, Jack-Jack bolts, and it's up to the rest of The Incredibles to find the baby and bring him back where he belongs. Along the way, we discover some of the polymorph's new powers.
The first scene is the launch, which is supposed to represent Dash rushing after Jack-Jack. But Jack-Jack isn't coming along. In the first tunnel, he shoots lasers from his eyes at Dash, who dodges the blasts.
In the next tunnel, it's Elastigirl's turn. Mom stretches to reach her boy, and Mr. Incredible offers an assist by punching through the tunnel with a chocolate chip cookie to lure Jack-Jack. The tunnel will include a chocolate cookie smell effect, which is the first use of a smell effect on a coaster than I can recall. (Correct me in the comments if I've missed something!)
The third tunnel features Violet, who uses her force field to protect us from the now-flaming Jack-Jack. Beyond that tunnel, we see Jack-Jack multiplying across the coaster's airtime bumps.
The ride concludes as Jack-Jack voluntarily returns to Edna Mode, and we see the VIP lounge once again. Disney did not include animation of that scene in the preview I saw, and Disney continues to keep the scene's content secret in today's press release, so we will just have to wait until Pixar Pier opens on June 23 to see exactly what happens in the final scene on the ride.Tweet
