Across Paradise Bay, 2 Paradise Pier icons: California Screamin' and Mickey's Fun Wheel

The Biggest Blast on the Boardwalk!

Race up a steep incline to an altitude of almost 120 feet, then take the plunge downward!

Buckle up in a coaster car and glide to the launch zone along a rocky jetty on Paradise Bay. As you anxiously wait for the starting signal, hold on tight as the excited voice of a carnival sideshow barker overhead begins the countdown to your whirlwind ride. And then, take off!

Catapult past splashing waves and swoop, swirl, dip and curl in and out of the Paradise Pier boardwalk area. Hurtle into the sky blue "scream tube" and then twist and turn until you reach a brief lull at the peak. Catch your breath for half a second before diving into the loop-de-loop that winds 360 degrees around a blazing sunburst.

Do you dare ride the longest and fastest roller coaster at the Disneyland Resort?

A Scream to Remember Like other attractions throughout the Disneyland Resort, California Screamin’ features image capture: a candid photo will be snapped as you make your way down the final loop. This special picture can be purchased at the Scream Cam shop after the ride has ended.


Watch Disney California Adventure Park whoosh past while riding this thrilling roller coaster.

An Aerial Tour

California Screamin' speeds around Paradise Pier on steel tracks that cover a distance of almost 1-1/8 miles. Reminiscent of the coasters built before the 1930s, thousands of steel towers, struts and beams comprise the gleaming structure that soars above many of the attractions along the water’s edge. Riding California Screamin' is a great—although speedy—way to see the fun that awaits you at Paradise Pier.
