The tall tower attraction at Disney’s California Adventure park will be closed after Labor Day (Sept. 6) in order to make room for other projects that will fit with the theme park’s new theme.
The tower, which thrusts riders 180 feet in the air in a matter of a few short seconds, will be removed from Paradise Pier because it does not fit with the new park theme. The new theme will throw park guests back in time to the early 1900′s. Maliboomer’s architecture does not reflect the time period.
There is currently a Facebook page attempting to save the Maliboomer, like the Disneyland Hotel waterfalls. The page, as of this published post, has only 76 fans.
A similar attraction, Supreme Scream, is at Knott’s Berry Farm in Buena Park where riders experience a free-falling sensation, rather than being shot upward.
Maliboomer’s closing isn’t the only scheduled renovation for the park. The Hollywood Pictures Backlot, soon to be renamed to Hollywoodland, has had tracks installed for San Francisco-esque cable cars. Bountiful Valley Farm (an area with gardens and water features for children to play in) will be open for the last time on September 7. The area will be demolished to make way for a new Cars Land attraction called Mater’s Junkyard Jamboree. Mulholland Madness, a smaller rollercoaster, will be closed later on October 12 to be re-themed into a coaster based off the 1940 cartoon “Goofy’s Glider”. The ride will be called “Goofy’s Sky School”.
