Disney's California Adventure Park is getting rid of one of its thrill rides.The Maliboomer tower, which shoots riders 180 feet up in the air in four seconds and then drops them, is being removed next month.

A park spokesperson says the ride doesn't fit in with the new vision for the Paradise Pier area that is currently under renovation. The new architectural theme is "a return to the romance and charm of California's oceanfront playgrounds of the early 1900s."

If you want to ride the Maliboomer again before it's taken down, you'd better act fast. The last day of operation will be September 6.

Disney is the parent company of ABC7.
