The Barnstormer Featuring the Great Goofini is a short, compact, and surprisingly intense rollercoaster with a Goofy theme.
The line is generally short for this, but if there is much of a line it can be a pretty difficult wait. I would circle around when the line is short for this ride which you can usually find.
The Barnstormer ride at Disney World, itself is themed off an old school Goofy theme. The train is made to look kind of like an old “barnstormer” style airplane and even has a propeller on the front.
This is a traditional rollercoaster with a big climb at the beginning. Then it uses the downward momentum to carry you back to the finish.
Because the coaster is built in such a tight footprint, you really feel all the movement so its actually quite intense. Before you know happened, though you roll back into the airport to let the next guests have a turn.
Theme Park: Magic Kingdom
Area of the Park: Fanstasyland
Age Range Appeal: Preschoolers, Kids
Queue Description: The queue is pretty short line mostly under cover. If the line is long do something else and come back as the kiddos will quickly bore. There isn’t a ton to look at and the trains don’t hold a lot of people so it moves pretty slowly.
Queue Length: Usually 25 minutes or less.
Ride Height Requirements: 35in (89cm) or taller
Scary Factor: This is a junior coaster, and its surprisingly intense, but it will be over before they know what happened.
