Encyclopedia > California Screamin

California Screamin' is a roller coaster at Disney's California Adventure at the Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, California. A hit with guests, the gleaming white-by-day/glowing blue-by-night boardwalk-themed coaster was designed by Walt Disney Imagineering, and was built by Intamin AG. It is one of the longest roller coasters in the world, at 6,072 feet long. Its highest drop is 108 feet. The design is such that it resembles a wooden coaster, but is in reality a steel coaster.
