History and Trivia

  • At this location: Much of the space taken up by the attraction was backstage area before cosntruction began, and much of the rest was empty space beneath the California Screamin' track. However, to provide access to the ride it was necessary to make changes to the "midway" section of Paradise Pier. Two dining locations were closed: Malibu-ritos was hardly missed since it was never really open. Strips, Dips 'n' Chips would have been missed however, but their menu was mostly moved to Bountiful Valley Farmer's Market, another never-open counter service restaurant that was revived by the move. A novelty photo store, Pacific Ocean Photos, was also lost to the need for space.
