  • [Rumor] California Screamin is done for

    http://micechat.com/168562-disney-pixar-pier/

    What is going on with DCA? My three favorites are gone or soon to be gone to re-skins. ToT, Soarin, now Screamin'. Oh, and no more Muppet Vision 3D.

    So when is California Adventure going through with a name change? I have a new name right here.

    EDIT: 8/17/17

    This thread started out mainly in regards to California Screamin, and the plead to change the parks name already. But please feel free to discuss the direction of DCA, the changes taking place, and how you ultimately feel about them. If I could change the title name, I would. Please remember to be respectful of one another, but with that being said, I do welcome opposing viewpoint.

    The ride and all of the enjoyment are still there. The music, which you can barely hear, will change, and the name will change. But you don't go for the name, you go for the ride.

      Actually makes sense to me; screaming is a great coaster, but the theme has always been lacking. That said, a cheap re-skin won't help, but nice to see the Incredibles in the park.
      I open a toy, review it and take mediocore pictures. Read all about it HERE!

        I've never felt that there is anything special about California Screamin'.

        Adios!

          This doesn't really bother me at all. I never saw California Screamin' as a coaster with a solid theme. Among the changes coming to DCA and Pixar Pier, this is probably one of my lesser concerns.

          Then again...I don't think a giant Dash head would be a nice replacement for the classy sun and Paradise Pier sign.

            Well, I liked the soundtrack.. idk it's just something I grew up on. The culture changes Everytime something changes at that place. To me, these ideas are very uninteresting and underwhelming.

              I'm sort of okay with most of it, but why so much Incredibles? I love The Incredibles like and good Pixar fan, but did I read correctly that there are going to be 2 Incredibles-themed attractions? Seems lame.

                This is the sad truth of a lot of attractions today. I'm sure if the TOT was stripped down to its metal skeleton, it would continue to be just as popular as ever.

                  I could imagine a giant verion of the "Incredibles" i logo, and I don't like it one bit. I'll miss old Screamin', but I'll miss it more if the Dash Coaster is bad.

                    I liked the Incredibles but I wasn't really clamoring for an Incredibles-themed ride. I get why they're doing it because it's an action film.

                    I just hope they turn Ariel's Grotto into a Ratatouille-themed premium dining experience, maybe similar to what they did in FL with Beauty and the Beast.

                      I'm okay with this. California Screamin doesn't really have much of a theme at the moment, so I'm intrigued how they can make a story out of this for Dash. I'm wondering what may be added to the experience and what color they will paint the coaster. It would be interesting to see more than just white.

                      I'm happy to read in the article that something could be going in the eastern helix. They called it a C-ticket spinner, but I'm curious what out-of-the-box attraction this may be based off.

                        Not really because TOT/GOTG are not about the skyshot ride as much as they are about the story you are in. (I have not been on GOTG yet, so I will not debate whether it's accomplished there or not.) Even Space Mountain is about the theme of being in outer space - otherwise they wouldn't have the ride in the dark. But Screamin' is just a large roller coaster that got a name to match the land. There's nothing about it that makes it quintessentially beach. You could probably kill off those crosshatch beams because they were decorative elements meant to make the coaster look like one of the old wood coasters, and the ride would still be the same.

                          It's one of my favorite coasters. I first rode it when I was 8, and it was the first one that brought me upside down. I've never gotten bored of it. But it's not in a park about California anymore. I'm surprised they didn't change it in 2012 with the rest of PP. It only make sense to stick a Disney character on it somehow.

                          I just don't know why they don't just change the name of the entire park already....

                            The coaster with the 100-Mile-Dash part of the score from Incredibles would be a great fit, IMO.

                            Also, six month refurb = opening right when Incredibles 2 hits theaters in June 2018. That's the Disney synergy we all know and love.

                              I always liked the music on Screamin but I won't be horribly upset if it changes. At least some earphones and my iPhone will re-create the original version if I ever feel nostalgic. It's not exactly a complex ride with animatronics or even screens that are being changed out. It's just music.

                                I love this scene and the Incredibles is still my favorite Michael Giacchino score. It also makes sense that one of the fastest parts of the ride happens on the water, although I'm not sure I see any connection beyond that.

                                Still, I'm waiting for the day when Disney synergy reclaims its Walt-era confidence and creates/names attractions before the public ever meets the characters.

                                    I will forgive Disney for re theming Screamin' if they will create a themed queue - preferably with air conditioning. The current cement ramp queue is incredibly unpleasant and boring. Spend money and do it right this time!

                                      I probably didn't do such a good job here, but this is definitely a message I wanted to convey. Thank you for putting it out there WaltDisney'sAlec.

                                      I think I also am still kind of having a hard time believing how fast this park is changing; i'm pretty scared they're going to take this sort of thinking across the street. I mean they already did with Hyperspace Mountain, but how long until something like that takes another classic attraction and ends up being permanent.
