Guess The Ghetto Coaster

Enthusiast coaster & amusement park chatter about whatever. If it's not about coasters & parks, it'll go to the garbage file. Keep it on-topic and flame-retardant, please.

Have Fun

Near enough: it's the Big Dipper at Playland-at-the-beach. The Bobsled is in the background, with its lifthill sandwiched between the Chutes ride and the tall brick chimney.

Ok it's in Eastern Europe and it is named after a licensed character although I doubt this park paid for the naming rights.

Have Fun

Hint: this park closed in 1984 (but the photo was taken 3 years earlier).

Hey CoasterKeener welcome to the forums. Having walked that coaster and built a version of it on No Limits I know you're correct. So you have to post a photo of it here. Since you're new let me know if it doesn't work. Iit might not let you upload any photos for a week - I had an anti-spam mod that did that to keep spammers away but I'm not sure if it's still active - if it won't email it to me and I'll post it for you.

Have Fun

I'm not sure what it is although my gut says something in the Northeast US.

The photo of my coaster is courtesy of Roller Coaster Database.

A hint: an Easter disturbance contributed to the demise of this coaster about a decade later.

This coaster shared its name with another coaster in the park.
