    This ride was AMAZING. Best of all, I fastpass-ed this ride, so it only took us 3 minutes wait when our time arrived. Soooo worth it

    WHAT A RUSH!! We rode it twice. Really enjoyed this fast-paced coaster. Starts fast right after the countdown. Remember, lean back!

    I'm honestly surprised Disney had such a thrill ride, unless Everest and the Rockin' Roller Coaster were high thrill rides at WDW I didn't think Disney had any! Definitely worth riding!

    Honestly the smoothest coaster I've ridden! The soundtrack played really adds to the experience. A few drops, one loops, tons of turns and a few camelbacks - no barrel rolls. Just like I like em!

    Keep in mind, California Screamin' closes early EVERY night when there is a showing of World of Color. Stop by at least an hour prior to any scheduled show to make it on time! (Hopefully)

    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.
  • Jason C.
    Jason CramJune 20, 2013
    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.

    Waiting for the front takes an extra 15 minutes. And you can't use your fastpass early.

    The front is where it's at. Take your hat off though or the ride will do it for you.

    Get a train with sound... Not having the music sorta ruins the experience!

    It's worth it to wait the extra minute for the front.

    don't think about the fact that this I one of the longest coasters in the world; that'll only make it seem shorter. ;)
