Kiddie Park Of San Antonio (San Antonio, Texas, USA)

Removed, Operated from 1950 to 2009

Roller Coaster · Steel · Sit Down · Kiddie

Make: Allan Herschell Company
Model: Kiddie Coaster / Little Dipper

Track layout: Oval

Details

Former names:Little Dipper
Trains:Single train with 2 cars. Riders are arranged 2 across in 2 rows for a total of 8 riders.
Facts:This Herschell Little Dipper appears to be a combination of two Little Dippers of different model and vintage.  The train on this Little Dipper is not consistent with what is normally found on a Herschell Little Dipper of this model.  The train being used is from a newer model and operates with just two of the original three cars.  Near the roller coaster there is an old car body being used as a planter.  This appears to be one of the older styles and is presumed to be one of the original bodies.

Riders must be 12 or under to ride the Roller Coaster.

Another interesting observation about this Little Dipper is the station awing reads "Little Dipper" and the sign on top of the lift hill reads "Roller Coaster".  This again appears to be a combination of more than one model Little Dipper as Herschell labeled the ride both ways over the years.
History:A San Antonio Express-News story quoted Ashley Weaver as saying “we literally cut it up and sold it for scrap metal" in regards to what became of the roller coaster.
