The Incredibles 2 continues to unsurprisingly smash the summer box office, setting the record for the biggest opening of an animated film at $180 million and surpassing a quarter of a billion dollars in gross revenue. Now, fans can follow the fun and mischief of the quirky super-family to Disneyland California Adventure, and partake in another action-packed adventure aboard the Incredicoaster, which opened to the public yesterday, Saturday, June 23.
As part of the park’s brand-new Pixar Pier, the late California Screamin’ thrill coaster got a quick face-lift to accommodate the release of the highly-anticipated superhero sequel. DisneyGo writes “This newly re-imagined attraction boasts enclosed Incredibles-red tubes that tower over Pixar Pier and a mid-century-modern-inspired loading area where vehicles wait to whisk Guests off on the Incredicoaster! Plus, all-new special effects, character moments, scenes and a musical score by Incredibles 2 composer Michael Giacchino adds to the super-fied fun!”
Disney Park Blog discloses the storyline of the reborn attraction: the people of Metroville decide to dedicate their rollercoaster to the Incredibles, inviting them to an inaugural launch. Superhero costume-designer Edna Mode agrees to watch baby Jack-Jack while the family rides the coaster, but chaos soon ensues as Jack-Jack disappears, and the family must spring into action to find him.
6,000 feet of drops, helixes, and humps await riders, including flame and laser special effects, according to Comicbook.com.
Ride along with Disney Park Blog writer Michael Ramirez and Imagineer Tracey Noce, creative director of the project, here.
