    The Sun Wheel is awesome. It's too bad the S&S towers are no longer there. Screamin' California was a blast to keep riding over and over. The Wild Mouse as usual is a pain to wait in line for. Now it's called Goofy's Flight School. Soarin' California is cool. I'm not sure if that Whoopi Goldberg narrated film is still in the theater by the front entrance.

    WARNING!!!!! Checking Screamscape I found this snippet about California Adventure: California Screamin’ – 9/6/11 through 10/14/11 CLOSED FOR REHAB

    I'm not sure the park is worth going to California Screamin' is closed.

    If this is true, I will not be a happy camper. The website is not saying anything either. I understand that Disney runs 365 days a year, but it doesn't make sense to shut the ride down now for rehab. It makes better sense to do it after Halloween events and open right before Christmas rush. Or wait until January when the attendance is lower and then do it.

    That's where I went to today. That place was empty. If I waited more than 2 minutes for a ride, it was considered long. If California Screamin' is not running, Disney should offer a discounted ticket. It is their signature ride at the park. I know last year when bigFM Expedition GeForce was not running because of the derailment, Holiday Park charged everyone the kids price. Because, although it is a pretty nice park, there is NOTHING there to justify the higher price when GeForce isn't running.
