With a drop of only 9 feet, I think that Leap-the-Dips is the slowest coaster.

Excluding junior coasters, I would have to say High Roller on top of the Stratosphere Tower.

Well, I just found out that the average speed of Leap the Dips is 10mph. I am sure that there are plenty of kiddie coasters that are slower than that. So...um..the search continues. *** This post was edited by sfmmman2001 on 3/18/2001. ***

There is a travelling funfair tiny kiddie coaster up north called 'Wallygator' which has a 6 foot drop and does about 5-6mph. I really don't know the exact speed. Track length is about 80-100ft. Just as well you get five laps per ride! :) In fact, I think it is the same model as SFMM's Canyon Blaster.

1) The Demon - 1988 Vekoma Boomerang
2) The Bush Beast - 1985 KEC Woodie (Clone of PKD's Grizzly)
3) Beastie - 1985 KEC Junior Woodie
4) More steel coasters please!!! Preferably a B&M Masterpiece!

Junior Gemeni is 6 MPH. I had to do a report on coasters' and I remember that as the slowest coaster in existance. Pretty sure on this one too!

Wow, it is 6mph. I just checked GTTP (thanx jeff). I knew that the lift was around 20. So, I figured that the speed was a little faster.

The coaster is located at Adventureland in Des Moines, IA. The top speed is 10mph as quoted from the official CCI page. Note that the longest drop is 15ft and is a gradual drop. The ride is reminiscent of the older Scenic Railways.

Is it just me or does Hypersonic look like one of those coasters you would see on Looney Toons?

Leap the Dips rolls along at 9 mph. I think it's faster now after they adden the steel track and guid rails.

How fast are the old Allen Hershell kiddie coasters, Little Dipper models? They don't go very fast either.
