Our local newspaper sets aside one page a week for teen writers. It is a well-done page. The May 3 page is about 80% on California Adventure by Kristin Schleicher. (80% is an unusually high percent for any one article on this page.) The text and a large photo take up about an equal share of the article.

Here are snippets:
<ul>
<li>Overall
<ul>
<li>be an early bird: 2-hour waits become common by mid-afternoon
<li>Do not expect the same wealth of attractions as at DL
<li>CA warrants a trip.
<li>Paragraph for the virtues and use of FastPass
<li>Final Paragraph: CA is a mixed bag, needs additional attractions (like roller coasters -- keep in mind that this is a teen's review). But "the atmosphere -- a more mature Disneyland -- feels just right."
</ul>
<li>Hollywood Pictures Backlot
<ul>
<li>"pales in comparison to what can be found at that other southern California destination, Universal Studios"
<li>Superstar Limo: "The ride is utterly cheesy, but people exit with a smile."
</ul>
<li>Golden State
<ul>
<li>"The magic of Disney parks lies in the details, and Soarin' Over California is no exception." = thumbs up
<li>the other 'must-ride': Grizzly River Run
<li>greatest diversity of food: "I have never eaten so well in an amusement park."
</ul>
<li>Paradise Pier
<ul>
<li>California Screamin' "will seem tame for many teenagers" - but the start is good
<li>Orange Stinger & Sun Wheel: "new twists on old favorites"
<li>Maliboomer: reverse version of Great America's Drop Zone
</ul>
</ul>
