Mountain Park's Rides


Duration: 1897-1915
Ride Type: Roller Coaster
Manufacturer: ?
Current State: Long Gone
Switchback Railway

This was Mountain Park's first of three full size roller coasters (click the picture above to see it full size).  Riders would board a car at one end of the ride, ride down a hill and then climb to another hill where the process was repeated.  This ride lasted until 1915 when it was replaced by the Gorge Scenic Water Ride, a more modernized roller coaster which traveled through scenic vistas.  Later, the Mountain Flyer would be built upon the same site.
