A newspaper claims the structure was 300 feet long, 100 feet tall and with a mile of track -- the latter two statistics of doubtful reliability.
This coaster may have been prefabricated, or at least, the lumber was cut elsewhere rather than on site. One report says that the ride was being shipped as 26,788 numbered sections in fifteen 60-ft rail cars, with erection expected to take only 10 days. Construction was attributed to John D. Thompson, also associated (in association with Herbert C. Snow) with Luna Park, Los Angeles.

Operating schedule

The ride was offered for sale early in 1916. No further mentions have been found, suggesting a sale and removal occurred at that time.
