California Adventure is the second theme park at the Disneyland Resort. Opened in 2001 it is adjacent to the original Disneyland Park and in part recreates some well-known Californian landmarks. The overall intention was to create a more adult-themed park than Disneyland, including faster, scarier rides and shows designed for a more adult audience. There are a larger number of restaurants and unlike Disneyland Park, alcohol is served in the California Adventure.
The park is divided into a number of themed lands: A Bug's Land, Golden State, Paradise Pier and Hollywood Pictures Backlot. The largest of the roller coasters is California Screamin' where the cars loop the loop through an outline of Mickey's head. There is also where the Tower of Terror can be found. Stage presentations include MuppetVision 3-D, It's a Bug's Life and Soarin' Over California. There are parades including, after dark, The Electric Parade (which has featured at DisneyWorld Florida and Disneyland Resort Paris in the past)
Hours vary through the year.
Single day ticket:
Adults (10+) $59
