July 1, 2011 – The Goofy’s Sky School Attraction Opens in Disney’s California Adventure Park
“The wild blue yonder gets a little wilder when you learn to fly the Goofy way.”
On July 1, 2011, as part of the major refurbishment effort of Disney’s California Adventure Park, the Goofy’s Sky School attraction opened in the Paradise Pier area. The attraction was originally opened in 2001 as a ride called Mulholland Madness, but had to be shut down often due to accidents. The current steel roller coaster attraction was based on the 1940 short film Goofy’s Glider, and features Goofy on billboards throughout the ride instructing guests how to fly a plane.
