World’s Oldest Roller Coaster

By Linda Tancs

If you were to name your favorite roller coaster, one with a nine-foot drop probably wouldn’t make the list.  Then again, in 1902 that was likely quite the thrill ride.  The coaster in question is Leap-the-Dips, the oldest operating roller coaster in the world.  Located at Lakemont Park in Altoona, Pennsylvania, the old gal has operated continuously for 112 years.  The amusement park is the eighth oldest in the country.  Get there this weekend before the close of summer season.
