The Basics

Ride traditional wooden roller coasters such as the Apocalypse, which features steeply banked turns and twisting drops, as well as modern cutting-edge twisters such as Goliath, which drops 255 feet (78 meters) into a subterranean tunnel and twists around multiple steep-banking turns. There’s also a section dedicated to kid- and family-friendly rides, as well as entertainment that includes meet and greets with comic book heroes.

Lines typically are long, but you can save time and hassle by booking your ticket in advance. If getting to the park is an issue, opt for a package that includes round-trip transportation from Anaheim.
