  • January 28, 2011: Mulholland Madness

    It's a classic Wild Mouse ride decorated with a cartoony mural that folds in and out like a roadmap, highway caution signs, and two billboards.

    Please discuss it here.

    Here's a shot from the lift hill prior to those outer walls being added. You can see straight through to the Paradise Pier Hotel.

      I thought this ride was/is quite a bit of fun. Sure, it isn't the typical Disney-quality ride, and the theming was questionable, but for what it was I found it to be pretty enjoyable. Here's hoping Goofy's Sky School will find a way to hide the ugly infrastructure a bit better.

        This was the one ride that turned me against DCA. It was the WORST experience I have ever had on a attraction. I am tall and I found that the vehicles not designed for adults. The slam you around for two minutes one of the stupidest concepts. There was no magic or illusion of anything. I did not feel I was on a freeway despite the road signs. I did not think anything other than was it was, a cheap bucket that threw around guests. After riding it once, after a 40 minute wait, I never rode it again and warned people about the stupidity of the ride. I have read that the Goofy version is no better, but I have a wait and see attitude on that one.

          I did think they should have at least had: 1) enclose the building and 2) theme the left hill to going up a dark road and the rest of the way themed to the hills and cities of Los Angeles County.

          But with Goofy's Sky School, they should just add maybe some music (like ether one of WDW's songs, "If You Have Wings" from the TL attraction of the same name or "Solo Pilot Blues" from MK's Goofy's Barnstormer.)

            Truthfully, Goofy's Sky School with it's blue painted track and some cloud decorations doesn't look like much of an improvement. Ditto for the Great Goofini redo of Goofy's Barnstormer in WDW, which looks like a similar airplane treatment. I can see this would be an eyesore for the Grand Californian guests, but I think the greatest idea would be to enclose it and make it a indoor funhouse with funny mirrors, rotating tunnels, etc.

              Although it will ultimately still be a decorated Wild Mouse ride, it should look much better than Mulholland Madness.

              The Victorian gingerbread at ground level should blend nicely with the Victorian makeover of Paradise Pier, making a charming walk all around the bay.

              I'm not sure how Goofy will convey his Sky School lessons, but I hope there will be many entertaining gags.
