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.

Touring Tips

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 the single-rider line.
