  • [Question] Wet on California Screamin'

    Did the wave machines ever get you wet before the launch of CA Screamin?
    Once it got all over my face and got me in the eyes.

    Nope never. Can't imagine it's be very comfortable blinking water out of your eyes at 50 mph.

      I've been misted before. I've heard that ride is like the worst thing ever when it's raining. Raindrops whacking you in the face for the whole ride! Ouch.

            It depends on how heavy the rain is. I rode in a light drizzle and it was quite fun, actually.

            As for the original question/post, yes, I've felt light mist many, many times on California Screamin.

              The signs in the queue of Screamin' actually warn that you might get wet, just like on Splash and GRR.

                  I know the feeling, I've ridden Screamin' several times when it was raining hard...so painful... but so fun in a strange way!

                      Yes, we were discussing this once way back in the DCA Project Tracker. Initially, the wave machines were timed to Screamin' to make it look like the wave started the launch. A wave would slap against the side of the coaster, everyone on the ride would get soaked, and the coaster would launch. It was a nice little effect before the wave machine fell into disrepair.

                      Maybe with the return of the wave machines, this effect will be working again!

                        Speaking of getting wet on an attraction... have you ever tried going on BTMRR at night when its raining? It's quite fun.

                        I think it's just random bad luck when the wave machine is working.

                          That sounds so cool! I guess I never noticed it when it worked. I'm going to have to keep my fingers crossed though.

                            Note to Self: Next time it's raining, bring the little full-face shield from the grinder, and treat it with Rain-X - Instant windshield.
