I asked the manager at Coast Rider if this was the same ride as Goofy's Sky School at Disney California Adventure. He told me that the manufacturer was the same, but the configuration was a little different. I also asked about the Lego Technic roller coaster at Legoland in Carlsbad, which I think the Coast Rider is more similar to, but he wasn't familiar with that roller coaster.
