It's called the Little Dipper, it's 54 years old, and it's unique as long as no one moves it. It would be hard to cart off in any case, because it's a full-size roller coaster - albeit a small one. It travels a circuitous route, 194 feet each trip, about a thousand times daily. Besides, if it was moved, the Little Dipper would lose claim to the title that the American Coaster Enthusiasts are bestowing on it today: oldest operating steel roller coaster still standing in its original location. That location is the Memphis Kiddie Park in Brooklyn, bordering Cleveland.
