Description And Comments
Themed as Goofy teaching a bunch of new pilots how to fly, Goofy’s Sky School is a designer Wild Mouse (sometimes also called a Mad Mouse). If you’re not familiar with the genre, it’s a small, convoluted roller coaster where the track dips and turns unexpectedly, presumably reminding its inventor of a mouse tearing through a maze. To define it more in Disney terms, the ride is similar to Space Mountain, only outdoors and therefore in the light. Goofy’s Sky School is an off-the-shelf midway ride in which Disney has invested next to nothing in spiffing up. In other words, fun but nothing special. One Denver, Colorado, woman who otherwise loves the park feels even that middling assessment is too generous, writing:
I think Goofy’s Sky School deserves a significant demotion. It doesn’t deserve to be called a roller coaster. It jerked us around so much that we were aching afterward.
- This attraction offers FASTPASS.
- This attraction has a Single Rider line.
A fun ride but also a slow-loading one, and one that breaks down frequently. Ride during the first hour the park is open, or use Fast- Pass or the single-rider line.
This chart shows you roughly how long you'll wait for Goofy's Sky School when you visit on a day with a given Disney California Adventure Crowd Level. The blue bars represent the average "peak" wait time (that is, how long the line will at its busiest). The bottom and top black lines represent the range of peak wait times to expect (for you fellow nerds out there: it's the 5th percentile and 95th percentile of peak wait times). Please note that these are estimates, and for a better forecast for your travel dates, see Goofy's Sky School Wait Times.
