Details

Notes:A 1967 advertisement lists 20 rides: Comet Coaster, Wild Mouse, Flash, Tilt-a-Whirl, Merry-Go-Round, Scrambler, Cuddle Up, Bubble Bounce, Paratrooper, Drive a Boat, Skooter, Swiss Sky Ride, Ride n' Laff, Ferris Wheels, Streamliner, Helicopter, Krazy Kastle, Fly-o-Plane, Octopus and Caterpillar.  This Wild Mouse would be a different Wild Mouse than the 1958 German ride.  It isn't known if this and the Flash were annual concessions or if they were present year round like the other rides listed here.  A 1974 newspaper report of a class trip mentions both rides, but they can not be located in a 1972 aerial imagery, which may just be due to poor resolution.
