A small, figure-eight layout, wooden coaster built in 1941.

This is a Flashpass attraction.

I think the ride was pretty smooth and a nice ride. I think the ride was literally shaking though. It was kind of scary standing in the station and the whole thing g would shake.

This ride's roughness kinda suprised me. It was not unbearable, but deffinatley not smooth. I heard a huge crunch at the top of the lift, which scared me because the ride already looked to be in pitiful shape. Decent airtime i must say tho

I luv this coaster. I prefer this type of 'small woodie' b/c they're enjoyable, not too rough & just 'right'. This one is really a good ride. I could ride this one several times in a row. It still will give you an enjoyable ride no matter how 'old' it is but it DOES look like it could use at least some paint.
