February 8, 2001 – The Thrill Attraction California Screamin’ Opens
“The biggest blast on the Boardwalk!”
On February 8, 2001, the thrill attraction California Screamin’ opened in Disneyland California Adventure. The roller coaster was made to be reminiscent of the wooden roller coasters of the Boardwalk, and is the longest steel looping coaster in the world; it is the fastest roller coaster at the Disneyland resort. Guests are taken up an incline of 120-feet before plunging into the ride. Pictures are taken of guests at a specific point in the ride, and are available for purchase at the end of the ride. Although the ride whizzes by quickly, guests are given an aerial tour of Paradise Pier, stretching out for a little over a mile.
