California Screamin' provides 360-degree thrills for Disney California Adventure Park guests. "We knew we wanted a big backdrop to the park," says Imagineer and Paradise Pier designer, Tim Delaney. "And the coaster was perfect. It's about 1,000 feet across as your eye scans it from a distance." Set on the southernmost side of the huge four-acre Paradise Pier lagoon, California Screamin' was designed to mirror the wooden look of coasters of yesteryear but with 21st century technology. This is no clickety clack type attraction. With more than 6,000 feet of track, the four-minute ride is the world's longest steel looping roller coaster.
