History and Trivia - Hide Section
  • At this location: When the park opened in 2001, this ride was Mulholland Madness and used the same track and vehicles (with different theming). Rather than a flying course, Mulholland Madness was a trip through Los Angeles horrendous ruch hour traffic. The exterior decoration was a giant mural depicting the landmarks of the Los Angeles region.
