History

The attraction's name is derived from the song California Dreamin', written by The Mamas & the Papas in 1963. 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. California Screamin' is the 5th longest roller coaster in the world (2nd longest steel coaster in the United States), at 6,072 feet (1,850 m) long. Its highest point is 120 feet tall (36.5 m) followed by a 108-foot (33 m) drop. The design is such that it resembles a wooden coaster, but is in reality a steel coaster. California Dreamin is a song by The Mamas & the Papas, first released in 1965. ...

This coaster is more uncommon than most, as it uses LIMs, or linear induction motors, to launch the train up the first hill, replacing the traditional lift hill chain. The seaside launch ramp also sports a wave-machine that allows waves to crash along side the rock base of the ramp as well as crashing up onto the trains before launch. This coaster is one of Disney's fastest attractions, accelerating guests from zero to 55 miles per hour (88.5 km/h) in four seconds at the launch, and like Space Mountain and Rock 'n' Roller Coaster the roller coaster is set to music. California Screamin' is the only inverting ride in the Disneyland Resort. This attraction offers both FASTPASS and Single Rider entrances.
