Junior Thrills, Major Smiles.
One day they’ll ride Raging Bull, but in the meantime, here’s a fun and friendly smaller-scale roller coaster for the little ones in your crew. Little Dipper may be small, but it packs a big punch, delivering lots of oohs and aahs for the mild adventurists in your family.
Jump on the train for a light-hearted, breezy ride through the figure eight running track. Your train will tackle swerving descents and swift turns, racing at moderate speeds that’ll make them scream and giggle at the same time.
Your car will chug through this whirlwind 700-foot-long track in about a minute. From a peak height of only 30 feet, your junior drop isn’t too steep, but is still exciting enough for a little tummy-tickle. Plus, the quick swoops, fast curves, and sudden switchbacks will be extra jaw-dropping for all the little up-and-coming thrill-seekers in your crew.
