Its certainly a nice classic coaster. The rides structure doesnt look all that great, but the classic NAD trains were cool. Well, the ride was very short and relatively tame and devoid of air, except for the big drop in the back seat which provided a pretty good burst.

APPEARANCE-3 The run down look and tool shed in the loading platform does nothing for me. CAPACITY-5 Not many people in the park so it didnt matter but one train, with some closed seats is not a way to move the crowds. RIDE QUALITY-8 I found it to offer a great true wood feeling. It definately ran better then it looked. the air in back was massive on the one hill and ranks as one of the most surprising pops i have ever got. FUN-9 Both rides I took involved a lot of laughs with my wife. Some because of the rides look, but a lot were due to this just being a good ol fun ride. RERIDE-5 Not much chance I will be back to this small park, but if I was this would be the reason. OVERALL-30 AVG-6.0 The ride itself is better than a 6 but other factors weigh into the rating for me.

A bit run down in appearance, a bit rough at points (the trains seem to shift left to right on the tracks), this "little" coaster does offer a good pop of air on the first drop and the drop just before the tunnel. A great throw back to the past with the heavy silver NAD trains and the big old break lever.

there is a nice pop of air on the first drop that you must be in the back of the train to experience. Also, there is history behind this coaster. However, it doesnt have any other thrills going for it.

The Big Dipper is a wood O&B. It was built by NAD in 1958. It is 50' tall, 1,800' long. It is fun, fast, rerideable, it has a large capacity, and long duration.

Fun classic coaster. It gives a good ride, but it could use some work. The old NAD Century Flyers that run on it are a big plus.

An underrated coaster. It looks like if the wind blows too hard it will fall right down. It has some very good airtime. It NEVER has any line at all. I liked the tunnel. But I did not feel too safe on this ride...

This is another nice wooden coaster. its fairly old and fun. It did leave speed as something to be desired. Its also an ACE coaster classic.
