The Barnstormer is next in our list in the Magic Kingdom Attraction Guide. This roller coaster went through a change with the expansion of Fantasyland, changing from Goofy’s Barnstormer to The Barnstormer, and with some other theme changes. To my knowledge, though, the track is the same as before. Here are the specs for you:
Attraction Name: The Barnstormer
Attraction Type: Small Drops
Height Requirements: 35″ or taller
Hours of Operation: All Day.
When my daughter was young, she loved this coaster because she was tall enough to ride it, and it gave her a great thrill to be “grown up” enough to ride a roller coaster. Now that she is a teenager, of course, she doesn’t have much interest in riding this, but if you have a child aged 9 or under, I bet they will like it!
As coasters go, this one is certainly at the bottom of the list for the Magic Kingdom, but like all things Disney, the story isn’t just the roller coaster, the story is the backstory of the attraction. In this case, check out Goofy, who is the Great Goofini, and take in all the little features that make up this attraction. You may be surprised at how much fun you have if you give this coaster a chance.
