Coasters in Guerneville

Wednesday, March 28, 2001 3:29 PM
There were a couple old Wild Mouse-sized rides in Guerneville, CA (one was called "Devil's Coach")..Anybody know what became of them and/or the small park they were part of?

A local ACE member owns the Devil's Coach. There is a Christmas Party at his house every December...the ride isn't running as far as I know. He lives in (I think the name is) Escondido, which is in Northern California.

Actually, Escondido is in SoCal. Actually, it's right around the corner from me. Perhaps I should drive around looking for it. Well, if the owner reads this, contact me...I'd like to know more!

There was an aerospace subcontractor in San Diego county that had his own private amusement park on his estate. He had a Wild Mouse, plus an assortment of flat rides. His parties were interesting I understand. He ran afoul of the IRS. They seized the property and had everything auctioned off.

So the Devil's Coach was not really destroyed, but rather dismantled and sold?

Just to clarify, Richard Tuck, the guy that owns Devil's Coach, lives in El Cerrito (East Bay Area). Here's his warehouse of memorabilia, which he opens up to ACEr's during the Xmas parties:

Last I heard, he still has DC in storage, and at one time, had planned to open a small family park somewhere in the Bay Area to set it up. But that was along time ago, not sure what his plans are now.

The Mad Mouse is in storage at the moment (with the rest of the rides) as they are being sold. Almost all of them will stay in California if everything goes through.

Looks like Santa Cruz beat them to Laughing Sal:

I think this guy should pitch the museum to Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk. I guess the only problem would be that he wants this attaction to be free and the Seaside Company would want to make a profit. But I'm sure they could sqeeze Devil's coach somewhere and not worry about birds hitting it. ;)

Heck, bring that stuff down to Belmont Park! *** Edited 6/25/2004 10:21:04 PM UTC by janfrederick***
