    It's called California Screamin for a reason! I lost my voice two hours before my solo opera performance. Totally worth it!

    If the Standby line is over 20 minutes, ask a cast member about the Single Rider line.

    California Screamin' is a small but fun roller coaster; while it comes nowhere close to reaching the heights or speeds of roller coasters at more adult centric amusement parks

    Disney tried to keep California Adventures like a pier amusement park and with this roller coaster they capture the essence of it! Great ride! I love the initial take off

    Make sure you request to sit in the very back. You get major airtime on the drops.

    If you don't mind sitting by yourself, use the single rider line. 1/4 the wait time and if your whole group gets in SRL you're likely to get on the same coaster train, though not the same car.

    The back of the train provides a better ride. More g-force perhaps, but it feel faster.

    Single rider is a confusing process to the uninitiated. You enter thru an exit but when you exit you exit thru a different exit than the exit thru which you originally entered.

    Get fast passes before you line up and if the return time is only 30-40 mins away, then you can use the Fast passes immediately after your first ride.. Over and over again.
