Mulholland Madness

This attraction is permanently closed. This page is retained here for historical interest.

Mulholland Madness is supposed to give you an idea of what it is to drive in L.A. traffic, though at 27 miles per hour it achieves speeds we generally don't make it up to in the real thing. It is a mad mouse-type roller coaster, which means it has steel construction and flat turns that don't bank. Shoulder and head rests were added after opening to help with the sharp turns.

As part of the expansion and retheming of Disney California Adventure begun in 2009, Mulholland Madness was closed for retheming and renaming to Goofy's Sky School using the same infrastructure.

Parenting Information - Hide Section
  • Height Restriction: 42" (106 cm.)
  • Child Swap: Ask the cast member entrance to the queue for a rider switch pass. When the rest of your party exits the attraction, two people may return through the Fast Pass line.
  • Other Issues: Smaller children don't fit well into the seats and may get thrown around more by the sudden turns. New lap bars provide individual restriction so sitting next to a much larger adult no longer allows more slack for smaller children.
