Kiddieland roller coaster lives on at Six Flags Great America

Posted Wednesday, April 21, 2010 11:52 AM | Contributed by Jeff

The Kiddieland Little Dipper is getting a big rehab. New wood had to be used to replace much of the old wood from the original dipper. As a matter of fact, only about 10-percent of the old structure is being used at Six Flags Great America.

Read more and see video from WLS/Chicago.

As a native Chicagoan who grew up at Kiddieland and SFGAm, I am SO excited that this ride has had new life breathed into it. I can't wait to get to the park this summer and give it a whirl!

I think I've said this before, but every major park should have a wooden family coaster like this. Go SFGAm

I started a thread on this a while back, and I mentiond how it looked as if they were not using much of the old ride's wood.

I have never been to kiddyland to ride this, but is it like the jr woodie at kings island?
