January 1993 – present

LOCATION

Mickey’s Toontown – After crossing under the bridge and into Toontown, follow the main path to the left. You’ll find Gadget’s Go Coaster at the end of the main walkway, just after Donald’s Boat.

BACKGROUND

When Mickey’s Toontown debuted in 1993, Gadget’s Go Coaster was the land’s only operating ride. In keeping with Toontown’s focus on small children, the Go Coaster was designed as a miniature thrill ride without scary inversions or dramatic drops. Gadget’s Go Coaster opened with Mickey’s Toontown in January 1993, and has drawn large crowds of guests big and small ever since.

EXPERIENCE

Details:

  • Single Rider Line – no
  • Fast Pass – no
  • Height Requirement – 35″ (89 cm)
  • Duration – 0:45

Based on Gadget Hackwrench from Chip N’ Dale Rescue Rangers, not Inspector Gadget, the ride offers guests a tour of Miss Gadget’s home on Toon Lake. To start, guests board in front of Gadget’s home, and she invites her new friends to join her on a trip around Toon Lake. During their trip, guests race around oversized spools, combs, soup cans, and other random items, before meeting frogs that shoot spurts of water at riders. Finally, guests return to Gadget’s home and continue on their travels through Toontown.

MY RATING: ★★☆☆☆

Gadget’s Go Coaster is the tamest coaster in the park. This is a great stop for little ones that don’t meet height requirements for other rides, or for guests that aren’t sure if they can handle the bigger coasters. While it’s a fun ride, the Go Coaster can have very long wait times (and has no fast pass). Given the short track, I don’t think the Go Coaster is worth a long wait, but if the lines aren’t too bad, I’d say go for it.

VISITING TIPS

Since the Go Coaster does not have fast pass, you may have to bite the bullet and wait in longer lines. Try to visit Toontown in the late afternoon, and you’ll have the best chance of shorter lines and less waiting.

TRIVIA

Gadget’s Go Coaster is Disneyland’s only junior coaster, designed primarily for small children.

  1. This is one of the few rides in the park I feel comfortable recommending that EVERYONE skip. The only circumstances in which you should ride it are a) you’re a completionist or b) you have kids that are too short to get on ANY other coaster in the park and you’ve just got to ride a coaster. Long line + short ride + the only “enjoyable” part is the theming, which you can see without actually going on it = skip.

    • Haha. I would largely agree. But if you take it for what it is and the park is pretty empty, it’s still fun. It goes faster than I expected. But you’re right, definitely the lowest priority coaster, by a long shot.
