California Screamin' was built by Intamin. It is the eighth-longest rollercoaster in the world (and third-longest steel coaster in the United States behind Fury 325 and Millennium Force), at 6,072 feet (1,851 m) long. It took 5,800,000 pounds (2,600,000 kg) of steel to build the ride. It is also the longest ride with an inversion (since Son of Beast became defunct). When the loop for Son of Beast at Kings Island was removed in 2006, California Screamin' became the longest looping coaster in the world.
The coaster uses linear synchronous motors (LSMs) to launch the train up the first hill as well as on the main lift midway through the ride. These motors replaced the traditional lift hill chain. This coaster is one of Disney Parks fastest attractions, accelerating guests from zero to 55 miles per hour (89 km/h) in four seconds at the launch.
Like most other coasters in Disney Parks, California Screamin' played a soundtrack during the ride, created by Gary Hoey and George Wilkins.
On January 3, 2007, the standard onboard audio track for California Screamin' was temporarily replaced with a remixed version of the Red Hot Chili Peppers' "Around the World," and the attraction was renamed Rockin' California Screamin'. This was promoted alongside Rockin' Space Mountain, a similar change made to Space Mountain in Disneyland, though that ride's audio was changed to the Red Hot Chili Peppers' cover version of "Higher Ground". These changes were part of the "Rockin' Both Parks" campaign. The standard audio track was restored when the campaign ended. The original safety spiels were recorded by Dee Bradley Baker. On November 5, 2010, the attraction's original recorded safety spiels were updated with the voice of Neil Patrick Harris. Harris also recorded audio for the launch, counting down for guests. There are 108 acoustic devices to play the onboard audio aboard each train, including high-rangers in the headrests, mid-rangers near riders' ears, and subwoofers underneath each rider's seat. After the refurbishment of Disney California Adventure, from 2007–2012, the Mickey Mouse head located behind the vertical loop was changed to a sun burst icon with the paradise pier logo over it.
Disney announced a complete renovation of Paradise Pier on November 2, 2017, into Pixar Pier. With it, would come the transformation of California Screamin' into Incredicoaster, which would be re-themed to and inspired by Pixar Animation Studios' The Incredibles.
On January 8, 2018, the attraction closed. It reopened as Incredicoaster on June 23, 2018.
