Notes

The roller coaster was built from pine and cypress obtained from the local jungle which was cut by hand.
An article in a 1953 issue of Billboard Magazine reports the length of this roller coaster as 2400 feet while a 1960 article reported it at 4000 feet.
The June 27th, 1942 issue of Billboard has Frank L. Uzzell's obituary written by bother R. S. Uzzell: "He traveled extensively in America, Canada, Europe and Mexico. In 1936 he, together with William C. Uzzell, super- intended the construction of an amusement park for the government of Guatemala, consisting of 12 rides, one of which was a giant coaster almost a mile long (in an earthquake zone). He remained there to train local operators and took them thru a national fair without a mishap. "
