Roller Coaster · Wood · Sit Down

Details

Designer:John A. Miller
Facts:It was mentioned in a 1950s Billboard Magazine that the Greyhound reopened late in the 1956 season after a major rebuild.  It may have been in a SBNO (Standing But Not Operating) status prior to the rebuilt.
Trivia:The Greyhound was seen in all three "'Smokey and the Bandit" movies staring Burt Reynolds and Sally Field.  It had been standing but not operating for a while before filming so the roller coaster was repainted for the movie.  It was seen just in the background in part 1.  In the second movie it was destroyed.  The 3rd Bandit movie had flashbacks that contained the roller coaster.
