Readers' Opinions

I wanted to write and then give my opinion:

I personally think this is really great! The Little Dipper is one of the few things I remember going on at Kiddieland when I was a kid. It will be perfect at SFGA, but I am wondering too.

This should also give a pretty good indication that SFGA is not concerned about closing down anytime soon. I doubt that they would, but this pretty much makes it for me that they are seriously staying open if they can spend the money to get a wooden roller coaster which they probably have to take down, transport, and rebuild at Great America due to the pretty large distance between the two parks.

I also like that Great America, over the past five years, has really started to become a bit of Roller Coaster Collectors and are trying to keep the Classics still around.

In regards to the Little Dipper, great addition! A family wooden roller coaster that is decient on the Thrill Factor.

It looks like a fun little coaster for the wee ones, Anthony. I hope Six Flags spiffs it up a bit (and gives it a much needed paint job), but otherwise I think it is a good move to buy the ride. There are only a few coasters like it left in the world (3 or 4, I think), and provided the ride is a smooth one, it should be a nice starter for kids who are tired of all the copy cat Wacky Worms, Wild Mice, and Vekoma Junior coasters littered across the US.

Thanks SFGA, for keeping part of Americas' coaster history alive for other generations to enjoy.
