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

    From the pier you can watch ppl just before they're shot off

  • SouthernBeets

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

    Fun, fun, fun!! The line goes fast and you can always be a single rider!

    Karina Lopes · December 8, 2014

    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

    A friend says it is a while different ride at night. Also has a great single rider line.

    Definitely the favorite ride in the park, especially the take off! 😃

    Don't forget to check out your photo on exit :)

    So much better with the music playin

  • Maverick M.

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

    Maverick Maximilliano · August 27, 2013
  • Francis M.

    Right before the loop turn your head toward disneyland (to the right) and stare that way during the loop

    Francis M. · August 26, 2013

    single rider and fastpass helps :) also be ready to scream ;)

    Abizar Attar · August 21, 2013
  • Kristen E.

    Line moves fast. Don't let long lines deceive you.

    Kristen Eason · August 13, 2013
  • Haley D.

    It's WAY worth it to go in the front!

    Haley Davis · August 9, 2013
  • Juan Carlos M.

    This is the best ride, try twice if you dare

    Juan Carlos Munoz Cortes · July 30, 2013

    This is fun!

    Kristi Schutt · July 21, 2013
  • Laurie W.

    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.

    Laurie W · June 24, 2013
  • Jason C.

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

    Jason Cram · June 20, 2013
  • Mike L.

    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.

    Mike Long · June 16, 2013
  • Larissa L.

    Recognize the voice in the beginning? It is beloved Neil Patrick Harris!!!!

    Larissa L · May 27, 2013
  • Jayme D.

    Get ready screamers

    Jayme D · May 11, 2013
  • Tommy

    Front seat is worth the wait!

    Tommy · April 17, 2013
  • Edmond W.

    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.

    Edmond Wong · April 14, 2013
  • Phill C.

    Not too scary!

    Phill Cross · April 4, 2013
  • Crystalyn

    Ask to be in row 1 it's the front and worth the wait!

    Crystalyn · March 21, 2013
  • Dean C.

    Put anything I'm open pockets zipped, tied, or whatever and your hats everything flys when you do.

    Dean Catcat · March 17, 2013
  • Mike L.

    Sit on the right side of the coaster, and look to the right as you go through the loop. :D

    Mike Long · January 28, 2013
  • Jepoy R.

    Get the single rider ticket to avoid long lines

    Jepoy Ramos · January 20, 2013
  • Marcelo M.

    I know you're in a hurry, hurry, hurry, but for your safety safety safety...:P

    Marcelo Melo · January 3, 2013
  • Norman L.

    On the loop, look up and to your right....it's awesome.

    Norman Lambert · December 20, 2012
  • Jason C.

    A million times better than Rockin Rollercoaster at WDW!

    There is a hidden Mickey on the ground in the cement base of the support pillars when you are upside-down in the loop
