Games of Pixar Pier is a section of boardwalk games at Disney California Adventure Park in Anaheim, California. It is located at Pixar Pier. An opening day attraction, the Boardwalk Games were given a makeover inspired by classic Disney characters as part of the park's major expansion project. These new games debuted on April 7, 2009, with another overhaul taking place as part of the Pixar Pier retheme of Paradise Pier.
As of 2009, the attraction uses a Power Card system which is required to activate the midway games and can be reloaded at "power stations".
Original Games (2001-2009)
The original Games of the Boardwalk at Paradise Pier were inspired by different parts of California. These included:
Boardwalk Bowl - A Skeeball game
Dolphin Derby - A water gun-based racing game where players must get their dolphins to the finish line first. Featured San Diego Bay decor
San Joaquin Valley - A basket toss game inspired by roadside fruit stands and California's agricultural heritage.
Shore Shot - A basketball hoop toss game celebrating California's sports teams.
New Haul Fishery - A fishing rod game where guests have to dip their fishing rod into the flowing waters and let the magnetic "hook" snatch the snout of a colorful toy fish.
Cowheunga Pass - A barnyard ball toss game where guests had to get balls inside of milk cans.
Bullseye Stallion Stampede - Guests must race their stallion across the prairie in a skee ball-like game. Guests sit at one end of the table and roll their rubber balls given to them into the right holes which makes their horse run faster. Guests can play it anyway they want. Bullseye from the 1999Pixar film Toy Story 2hosts this game.
Goofy About Fishin' -A Goofy-based retheme of New Haul Fishery
Casey at the Bat - Guests throw a ball through the opened target shaped like the opposing team's catchers in the catcher's mitt.
Dumbo Bucket Brigade - Guests must save Dumbo and the circus from the flames by helping the clown firemen. Guests grab an old-fashioned water brigade cannon and must squirt a steady stream of water into the center of the bucket. Guests should make sure their clown reaches the top first.
Pixar Pier Games (2018-present)
While Bullseye Stallion Stampede was retained, the other games were rethemed. The new games include:
Wall-E Space Race - A replacement of Dumbo Bucket Brigade.
La Luna Star Catcher - A replacement of Goofy About Fishin'.
Bullseye Stallion Stampede replaced Dolphin Derby, the old game, while Goofy About Fishin' replaced New Haul Fishery. There are now only four games as of 2009 due to Toy Story Midway Mania! taking over most of the midway games' spot.
