The Barnstormer Featuring The Great Goofini is a Family Roller Coaster that originally opened as The Barnstormer at Goofy’s Wiseacre Farm. The current theme still highlights Goofy, but signage in and around the attraction advertise the series of stupendous stunts that Goofy has performed as part of his “barnstorming”.
The official backstory of the attraction from the Disney Imagineers is as follows:
“The greatest show in the kingdom, The Storybook Circus, has just come to town and set up in beautiful Carolwood Park. There’s fun and pageantry to be had for everyone. But if it’s thrills you’re after, The Barnstormer featuring Goofy as the Great Goofini is one attraction you won’t want to miss!
“The circus’ fearless daredevil, the Great Goofini, has become the resident flying ace for his latest spectacular showcase of aerial acrobatics and bravery. It’s ‘plane’ crazy and sure to leave you breathless.
“And that’s just the beginning! The Great Goofini will stop at nothing to amuse and entertain his audience. The Canine Cannonball, the Reckless Rocketeer and Bear Wrasslin’ are just few of his notable feats of peril showcased in fully illustrated posters that line the circus walkways.
“So the next time you visit the Storybook Circus in search of some excitement, keep your eye out for the Great Goofini. You never know if he’ll be blasting, crashing, or soaring through the skies, but you know you’ll definitely have a good time watching!”
There is no Disney Description at this attraction.
The Barnstormer Featuring The Great Goofini is one of the low range demand Fastpass+ reservations in the park. Availability will exist well into the day, and unless it’s used midday it will not be a considerable time savings.
The outdoor queue featured overhead shade coverings that resembled targets that might be found at a circus.
The vehicles are themed to crop dusting planes paying tribute to the attraction’s original incarnation as The Barnstormer at Goofy’s Wiseacre Farm. Each row seats two guests (typically an adult and a child). Each “train” has 8 cars, and each car has a single row. Every other car has a covering above it.
The attraction originally debuted in 1996 as The Barnstormer at Goofy’s Wiseacre Farm in Mickey’s Toontown Fair. When Mickey’s Toontown Fair closed in 2011, the attraction closed with it. It re-opened at The Barnstormer Featuring the Great Goofini along with the rest of Storybook Circus in 2012.
The attraction is less thrilling than Slinky Dog Dash, Big Thunder Mountain Railroad or Seven Dwarfs Mine Train but they are the closest comparisons.
