California Screamin’ is an amazing ride. It’s themed like a boardwalk out and back style coaster, but it incorporates steel for its construction, a launched start, and an awesome loop. I love how the ride is set up over the boardwalk area so that park patrons are always in the midst of its circuit. From anywhere in the Paradise Pier area, you can hear the roar of a coaster train, quickly accompanied by screams and laughter. When they took the Mickey from behind the loop to be replaced by this sun, I wasn’t sure I would like it. It took no time at all for the decision to grow on me. Mickey’s smiling face looks great on the Fun Wheel. You can’t help but smile when you see him. And this look for Paradise Pier boardwalk roller coaster? Well, it screams fun in the sun.
