A wooden roller coaster, most recently known as Fairly Odd Coaster. Originally named Scooby Doo, the name was later changed to Beastie in 1980 and a tunnel was added at the bottom of the first drop. In 2006, the park renamed it again when the surrounding area was rethemed Nickelodeon Central. Designed by John Allen and built by the Philadelphia Toboggan Company, Fairly Odd Coaster has a double out and back layout with one crossover. Standing 38-feet, 6 inches tall, this junior woodie has a 35-foot drop, 1,350-feet of track and a top speed of 35 mph. Two trains accomodate 20-passengers on this minute and half long ride.

A great wooden kids coaster. I hadn't been on this layout in a while. First drop caught me by surprise. But a tough coaster for tall adults. - M. Ryan Traylor

As its old name, the Beastie, it shows that you can make a smaller roller cosater, that is still very similar to the larger ones in a kids perpective. To small to ride the Beast? Ride this. - Michael Hurley
