What a great place to go! You can really do this park in 8 hours, its not like Disneyland that really takes 2-3 days. It is also not at crowded as Disneyland. We started our day @ Soaring over California! What an amazing ride. You sit in hang gliders like seats then you are lifted into the air and soar over all parts of California, you actually feel like you are flying. And at one point can smell the oranges as you fly over the orange tress. We rode this twice, it was so awesome. Next onto The Water ride (sorry, name escapes me) you sit in what looks like a tire built for 8 an ride down the rapids, a fun ride, but boy do you get wet. We then rode California Screaming three times in a row. Now my son has never been on a roller coaster like this he was very nervous. He screamed the whole time, and then at the end asked "Can we ride again?" Awesome, fun roller coaster. My son did refuse the Tower of Terror which drops you 13 stories. I was kinda scared but went on it with my daughter. Rod Serling talks to you in a waiting room then onto the elevator. All I can say is don't eat first. Man, what a drop, and multiple times too! You don't even know you have gone that high. It was a very smooth drop, not jerky They had one other roller coaster smaller with jerky turns, but it was also a lot of fun. Most of the other rides were carnival like, but I love the swings. Loved all of the shows, they were great. Skip the fast food (four corn dog meals cost 35.00) and go to the Sourdough tour. At the end of the tour you can buy soup in a sourdough bowl, much more satisfying and cost less. Not only that across the way they had margaritas and beer, great for those aching joints. legs, feet. The Tortilla factory tour is also neat, and you get a fresh tortilla at the end. We really enjoyed California Adventure and will definitely go back again.
