Matterhorn can be a rough ride, but those cushions made it rideable again. I would agree that MK's Space Mountain is a more enjoyable ride, and more comfortable.

Completely random DLR question:

Does anyone know if they are going to re-paint Incredicoaster (aka CA Screamin') as part of the overlay/refurbishment? I am excited for the theming changes to the ride, but would be disappointed if they didn't use this time to give it a nice, fresh coat of white paint. The last few times I rode on it, it was really looking drab and beat-up. As fun as the Incredibles additions will be, I sure hope they go all out and paint the whole thing.

I would assume that if the ride isn't covered in scaffolding by now, the answer is probably not. But they could also be waiting for other work to finish.

At some point, the coaster closes again for Flik's Flyers to make the journey over. Maybe they can paint the coaster then? That is a good observation that I had not thought of before, the drab paint in some sections. It will stand out a bit next to the scream tubes.

Why paint it white? I mean... I thought they would pick a new color being that it's re-themed to Incredibles.

It's still the Pixar Pier. So leaving it white to keep the boardwalk look makes sense.

Hi all

I'm visiting Disneyland and DCA for the first time at the end of May.
Does anyone know the liklihood of Disney soft-opening Pixar Pier/Incredicoaster before mid June?

I know the official opening isn't until the 23rd, but I was wondering if anyone has experienced soft openings at DCA before.

Thanks!

I've watched a recent Incredicoaster testing video and it sounds like they've replaced the old LIMs with brand new LSMs. Here's the video if anyone's interested:

Here's a pic of the new Incredicoaster trains from the Disney Parks Blog website. IMO these trains look hideous. The blue/gray color looks flat out ugly and the painted on grill and idents makes the train look tacky and cluttered.

Life is like a roller coaster- it has its ups, its downs, its heartline rolls, its batwings, its immelmanns, its corkscrews, is pretzel loops, its..... never mind.
