Giant Coaster/ Wild One

Posted by buddycub1 on 2007.08.14 at 19:09

Thought I would share abit of coaster history that I found out today. Below (left) is the Giant Coaster which is a 1917 coaster in Massachusetts. That coaster was moved to Maryland in 1986 and called the Wild One (right). Why was I looking at this today? Well I used to be the ride operator for the Wild One.

It was very cool to operate. The ride had one button for the lap bars and the rest of the ride was controlled with levers. You have to lift and lower levers to get the trains in, parked, and out of the station.

The entire ride was transported to Maryland, but a helix was added at the end. If you are in Maryland you should check that ride out.
