Incredicoaster

 


What looks like a classic wooden roller coaster, is anything but. Go on an adventure with The Incredibles at the inaugural launch of a new roller coaster dedicated to their heroic efforts.

 

 

Edna Mode and Jack-Jack are too short to ride, so they stay behind in the VIP lounge.

 

Jack-Jack slips away from Edna and creates chaos on the track as the whole Parr family gets in on the action and attempts to catch the littlest super.

 

 

Look for a new show elements throughout the attraction, including in the "scream tunnels," and new music from the composer of The Incredibles!
