Look ma, no hands!

Can you believe that at one time this roller coaster was a dilapidated old relic? It first opened in 1925 and was quite a success, but by 1976 the roller coaster closed due to disrepair. Local citizens had the Giant Dipper named a National Landmark and rallied the community to save the coaster. It reopened in 1990 and has become an exhilaratingly fun seaside attraction once again.

I remember a radio personality riding a marathon day at the roller coaster to help on the upkeep.(name escapes me..senior moment). I covered and rode a few times for the TV station I worked for then.

Pity there's no tradition of women "flashing" on the downslope, as there is at Disneyland. Disney management say they're vigilant and don't allow the naughty photos to get published, but there are plenty on the Internet. Fans of bare breasts, google "flash mountain".
