Supervise children at all times.


The Barnstormer at Goofy’s Wiseacre Farm was the first roller coaster for many young Disney fans. It was lucky enough to survive the Fantasyland Expansion albeit under a different name, The Great Goofini.


As the train/plane left the barn, it took a right turn towards the lift hill. The lift hill took up the majority of the attraction. While the lift hill itself was uncovered and unthemed, it offered views of the queue and the rest of Mickey’s Toontown Fair. At the top of the lift hill, the vehicle traveled through a barn like structure that was situated on both sides of the track.

The train twisted and turned through the outdoor foliage before entering the barn through a hole in the wall. It quickly exited the barn into the break run before returning to the station.


This typically opened with Mickey’s Toontown Fair, 1 hour after park opening.


The queue for this attraction featured more detail than the ride itself. Set in an old style barn, the queue offered guests a view of the Wiseacre Farm as well as numerous site gags and references to classic Disney characters.

The attraction’s marquee featured Goofy’s plane crashed into the water tower at Wiseacre Farm. Once in the queue,a yellow and green fence lined a rarely used outdoor queue that directed guests past a lettuce patch. The barn itself featured uneven roofs, red siding, yellow windows and yellow doors. While some of the attraction took place in the barn, most of it was devoted to the queue. Some of the props were similar to those found in Mickey and Minnie’s Country Homes: cartoonized versions of items like popcorn, scare crows, and even an “Airplane Fuel” tank dubbed Goofolene. A reference to the Main Street Electrical Parade can be found one of the barn doors; the door originally read “Electrical Main Inside”, but it was been modified to read “Electrical Main Street Parade Inside”.

At the far right of the queue was a sign advertising for “Wacky Radio”. The sign read, “Wacky Radio with Red Barnes. The Rowdiest Rooster on Radio. All Country all the toon.” On the last line of the sign, the “U” in “Country” was actually a horseshoe as well.


Closed February 11, 2011 – This was the last day of operation before it was re-imagined into The Barnstormer Featuring The Great Goofini.


The attraction is significantly less thrilling than Big Thunder Mountain Railroad or Primeval Whirl, but those two are the closest comparisons. This attraction does not have the spinning components of Primeval Whirl or the theming of Big Thunder Mountain Railroad.
