Two popular Paradise Pier attractions: Mickey's Fun Wheel and California Screamin

Revolutionary Fun

Hop inside a roomy gondola for a breezy, 9-minute jaunt above Paradise Bay.

Stroll along the sprawling Boardwalk at Paradise Pier and make your way beneath a towering wheel adorned with Mickey’s smiling face. On Mickey's Fun Wheel, the rotating rays of the wheel spokes twinkle like a kaleidoscope. Before you take off, choose the type of gondola you want to ride in: stationary or swinging. Then, hop on board and ascend 150-feet high in the sky, marveling at the scenic views of Disney California Adventure Park all around you.

The Gondolas
24 colorful gondolas revolve around the giant wheel at Paradise Pier. There are 8 stationary gondolas identified by the face of Mickey Mouse, and 16 swinging gondolas featuring Goofy, Minnie, Pluto and Donald faces. The swinging gondolas glide on interior rails and sway during the trip, creating a sometimes dizzying—but always exhilarating—effect. All gondolas carry up to 8 people.

Full Circle 

Mickey’s Fun Wheel is one of only 2 “wonder wheel” Ferris wheels still operating in the United States. The other is the original 1920 Wonder Wheel at Coney Island in New York, which acted as the design inspiration for Mickey’s Fun Wheel.

Too Dizzy For Me?

Mickey’s Fun Wheel offers 2 different ride experiences: swinging or stationary gondola. If you decide you want a wild ride, be sure to choose the swinging gondola option; your gondola will sway independently and slide back and forth on an inner rail. If a gentler, more stable ride is what you’re after, be sure to opt for the stationary gondola. Whichever you choose, both gondolas offer the same stunning views of Paradise Bay.
