Details

Notes:A Billboard magazine article covering the dismantling of the Zip roller coaster beginning in January, 1952 goes on to state it was to be replaced by a junior coaster in a different location.  That isn't confirmed, although an advertisement offering the park for sale at the end of 1952 does mention a kiddie coaster, but with no details as to type.  An ad for the liquidation sale in October, 1961, mentions both a "Leap the Dip Small Roller Coaster, 4 cars" under major rides, and a "Junior Roller Coaster" under Kiddyland rides.

It is assumed the Junior Roller Coaster or kiddie coaster mentioned in these references is the same ride.  It is also presumed this was a steel oval kiddie coaster which would have been quite common during this time.
