Goofy's Sky School

Goofy's Sky School is a wild mouse style roller coaster which speeds into multiple turns giving you the sensation that the ride is about to accelerate right off the track!

Goofy Sky School Sign

Goofy's Sky School has a ton of great panoramic views of California Adventure, but you'll need to be prepared for these sharp turns as the ride approaches each bend and turn. 

The ride has a really fun storyline where you're "attending Goofy's Sky School" with a lot of laughs and fun along the way as you would expect from a ride named after Goofy. 

If you think this ride is just for kids then you're mistaken!

The Incredicoaster replaced the longstanding roller coaster California Screamin' in 2018 as part of a retheming that transformed Paradise Pier into Pixar Pier.

While the ride path is entirely the same, the Incredicoaster was repainted, a new storyline was added, as well as a new soundtrack and appearances from The Incredibles characters.  

Incredicoaster Sign

The Incredicoaster is a high speed, wooden roller coaster which features the only inverted loop at Disneyland or California Adventure. 

It's definitely one of the most intense rides at California Adventure, but it's also a great way to introduce children to their first "big" roller coaster if they've been able to enjoy more tame roller coasters in the past.
