Notes

The roller coaster was damaged by a storm in July, 1943, and rebuilt by the spring of 1944.
John Miller died in Houston in July, 1941, while working on plans for a roller coaster there. It is possible this roller coaster was the intended location, although nothing has been found that says specifically whether he was involved in designing this ride.
