The Incredicoaster is a thrilling roller coaster attraction located at Disney California Adventure Park in Disneyland Resort, California. It is based on the popular Pixar animated film “The Incredibles” and is one of the park’s most exciting and popular rides.

The Incredicoaster, originally known as California Screamin’, first opened on February 8, 2001, as part of the park’s opening-day attractions. It was reimagined and rethemed as the Incredicoaster on June 23, 2018, coinciding with the opening of the park’s Pixar Pier area.

The attraction’s storyline is inspired by “The Incredibles” film, with guests joining the Parr family, also known as the superhero family, on a high-speed adventure.

The queue and loading area are filled with fun and colorful details, immersing guests in the world of superheroes.

The Incredicoaster is a favorite among thrill-seekers and Disney fans alike, offering an adrenaline-pumping experience combined with the charm and humor of “The Incredibles” films. It has become a must-visit attraction for guests at Disney California Adventure Park, drawing long queues of eager riders.
