Goofy's Sky School concept art

The updated Goofy's Sky School rollercoaster is officially open to the public at Disney California Adventure, marking a milestone in the park's $1.1 billion refurbishment program.

Goofy's Sky School is a lightly-rethemed version of the existing Mulholland Madness wild mouse coaster, making it a relatively minor elements of the overhaul of the park. However, its debut on July 1 marked the completion of the transformation of the Paradise Pier area to a new 1920s boardwalk theme.

To celebrate the ride's return to action, the Disney Parks Blog has released a video which splices footage of the guests experiencing the coaster with footage from Goofy's Glider, the 1940s cartoon which it is now themed around:

Goofy's Sky School is a classic wild mouse coaster, and was formerly known as Mulholland Madness. It features sharp turns and sudden drops, and reaches a top speed of 27 miles per hour. The new theme has seen the vehicles updated to feature aeroplane-style decorations, while clouds and other theming elements have been installed alongside the track. The backstory of the ride is based on Goofy's attempts to teach pilots how to fly.

Two new restaurants, Boardwalk Pizza & Pasta and the Paradise Garden Grill also opened to the public on July 1.
