When guests walk up to the front entrance, they see a sign for Gadget's "squirrel-made" coaster out of random items. Above the station is a portrait of Gadget herself on a postage stamp. It is primarily for kids and therefore has very small cars. While two children can easily fit into a single car, most adults would have to travel alone (or with a small child). The guests board an 8-car train fashioned from acorns and scavenged parts.
Once on board, the guests are treated to a safety spiel audio recording by Gadget herself (voiced by Tress MacNeille, reprising her role). They then travel through the coaster made up of oversized salvaged objects (old combs, soup cans, thread spools, etc.), through a hill and over a small lake. Near the end of the ride, cartoon frogs squirt water at the guests. The train then returns to the station, where the guests disembark.
At a mere 44 seconds, the ride is the shortest at Disneyland.
