Built by the Philadelphia Toboggan Company, this wooden family roller coaster ride is 700-feet long with a 30-foot lift hill, in a figure-eight track. The ride was built in 1950 and installed at the Kiddieland Amusement Park in Melrose Park, Illinois, which closed in 2009. In 2010, the ride was moved and reopened at Six Flags Great America.

Looked good for kids. ( The target age) - Andrew Dougherty

This is probably a good coaster for very small or very timid children, but my 10-year-old coaster freak wasn't impressed. The coaster looks like it got a fresh paint job and looks good, though. - Trisha Levine

This is a good ride because it reminds many of the memories, but when I rode it closing weekend at Kiddieland, it seemed to be a little faster and smoother. Plus with OSHA regulations, the original hand brake couldn't be used. And I heard 90% of the wood is new, as the wood was old and not easy to reconstruct. - James Charmelo

Small and pretty tame roller coaster, but is still fun for the family and for the history behind it. Looks much better than I ever remembered it and perfect for a first time roller coaster rider! - Anthony Murphy
