Details

Relocations:Pocono Play Park as Pocono Lightning
Pocono Play Park as Pocono Lightning
Moss Hollow Creek Family Park as Kiddy Roller Coaster
Trains:Single train with 5 cars. Riders are arranged 2 across in a single row for a total of 10 riders.
History:Pocono bought this roller coaster from a traveling operator near Pittsburgh who they referred to simply as "Buzz". "Buzz" made a number of changes to the roller coaster.  This was originally a ground mount roller coaster which he customized and affixed to a trailer making travel easier.  The original electric lift hill motor was also replaced with a gasoline motor.
Notes:Sometime before the 2004 season this roller coaster was repainted from yellow to red, white and blue. It was also moved from the rear of the park to the front where a go-kart track previously existed.

The cars are labeled "Miler" but the park feels the track and structure may really be a Ben Schiff "Low Boy" model based on what others have told them.  This may simply be that Ben Schiff built more of these roller coaster than Miler, so the Schiff name is more recognized.
