California Screamin'

Top choice in Disneyland Resort

Paradise Pier's state-of-the-art roller coaster resembles an old wooden coaster, but it’s got a smooth-as-silk steel track: it feels like you’re being shot out of a cannon as you go through twists, turns and a 360-degree loop. FastPass available.
