Attractions

Grizzly River Run (Opened February 2001)
FASTPASS Attraction
Grizzly River Run is the wildest, wettest raft ride in the West. The six-passenger rafts start with a 45-foot high climb up Grizzly Peak, with drenching drops to follow. You’ll race down a California river through white water rapids, mountain caverns, waterfalls, and to a dizzying drop into the river gorge. There are two drops, the final one being the Grizzly-Go-Round. Guests drop 22 feet, while the raft spins 360º. Each ride is unique, but one thing is certain, you will get wet.

Restrictions: Inaccessible to strollers. Must transfer from a wheelchair/ECV. Closed captioning. Height requirement: 42” (106 cm) or taller.

 


 


Redwood Creek Challenge Trail (Opened February 2001)

This is a huge children’s play area set in the California redwoods. There are plenty of fun things for kids to do along the trail. They can go through a redwood tree, play on the rock slide, cross the suspension bridges, climb rock cliffs, check out animal prints, and more.

In addition, the Wilderness Explorers' Camp has opened at Redwood Creek Challenge Trail, featuring Russell and Dug from "Up".  As you enter the trail, you'll be met by Dug, the friendly dog.  The trail features Wilderness explorer activities through which kids can earn merit badges.  At the Ahwahnee Camp Circle, kids can participate in a special ceremony with Russell and graduate to Senior Wilderness Explorers.

Soarin' Over California (Opened February 2001)
FASTPASS Attraction
This one of the most popular attractions at Disney California Adventure, and one of the best at the Disneyland Resort. Guests board a simulated hang glider, and soar over California vistas that are projected on a giant IMAX screen. This incredible experience is made all the more realistic with the gentle breezes that carry the scent of pine trees and orange groves. During your flight, you’ll soar over the Golden Gate Bridge, Yosemite, and pass over skiers as they head down the slopes of Lake Tahoe. From the desert to the cityscape, your journey ends in an unforgettable burst of fireworks.
