Notes:The former owner of Hillcrest Park claimed that the plans to the Little Dipper were purchased in 1952, but the ride was not built until 1956.  This appears to be in error as letters from the park to PTC exist that mention the opening in 1953.

It is believed the park closed some years prior to Hillcrest park purchasing the Little Dipper in 1966.
