Great site there Jason, wish I would have checked it out earlier. Anywho, your 1966 Brochure and Park Guide has a map in it that does not show a ride name Zugspitze anywhere. Your 1969 Souvenier map however, shows the Zugspitze right along the beach behind the Space Spiral, right where Disaster Transport is now. Unfortunately it is just an artist rendering. Your 1972 Park Guide does not have the Zugspitze anywhere, and the Matterhorn is on the site where it was at. So we are basically looking at a 5 year window from 1967 to 1971 for someone to have a picture of it Berg-und-Talbahn, roughly 40 years ago, so that is going to be hard to come by. You could always try asking Tony or Tyler at the CP website if they happen to have any pictures in their archive, but I doubt we're going to be able to find one here for you, but it doesn't hurt to try! :)
I knew I'd been on something PRETTY similar. I took the pics down from this trip a WHILE ago....but I'm very much reminded of "Sleighride" from SFDL.
Also, quite similar to a ride that ran as "SwissBobs" somewhere in Jeresey when I was a kid. Wild Adventures still has its "Swingin' Safari", another one with a similar ride experience (but made by Chance, so...).... ;)

Not 100%. (Not even 75%.) But, I recall hearing sometime in the past that Indiana Beach got Cedar Point's Zugspitz in the 70's and later upgraded to a Musik Express in the 80's. I know IB's used to be called by the name, Zugspitz. (no E).
Man, those were the days! 4 adults or 5 or 6 kids in a car! Yahooooo! It was even more fun going backwards! Oooooohay!
