I know that Leap-the-Dips is the oldest woodie but for some reason I have no clue what the oldest operating steel is. Help me out please!!

Leap the Dips was restored and re-opened in 1999 making it the oldest operating roller coaster in the world. It was SBNO for years prior to a restoration effort by concerned coaster enthusiasts. (with deep pockets)

As for Matterhorn (my first coaster) you bet it is still running.

Gotta ride 'em all!

I believe the Matterhorn opened ih the late 50's 57 I think.

Parks hit for 2000!
