or the old cable cars (sky ride) that used to go into Frontier Trail..

Jeffrey Spartan
The Frontier Lift is listed (sky ride to Frontier Trail).

But, I think Neil's right. I'm sure CP had three carousels at one point in time.

Duane Cahill
How about the Double Wheel? Or is that "Ferris Wheel" on the list?

Duane Cahill
DBCahill is almost correct. CP actually had FOUR carousels at one time (five if you want to also count Cedar Downs which is actually a carousel)
Midway Carousel, (now located at the front of the park). KiddieLand Carousel, Frontier Carousel (the one with the "Haunted Horse")and there is a small little carousel in Kiddie Land.
Like Daune, I thought of the DOuble Ferris Wheel, and the kiddie ferris wheel which was in Kiddie Land forever and a day.
There were also 2 different versions of the Eden Muesse, wasn't there?
Pittsburgh, PA

Hmmm...I think the Eden Musee changed buildings and ownership at some point, then was not sold to Cedar Point when they took over the concessionaires. At that point, the Eden Musee figures came to Columbus, and Cedar Point briefly operated the Hollywood Wax Museum. Some of those figures are now in the Town Hall Museum. The building became the Centennial Theatre in 1970.

A side note to all that...I believe that the person who didn't sell the Eden Musee is Ed Schmid, who has since operated Funni-Frite, a fun house manufacturer in Pickerington. I mention that because Funni-Frite is scheduled to be auctioned off early next month by Norton of Michigan. I do not know the details.

The double Ferris wheel was called the Sky Wheel. I have a grainy picture of it at If you look behind the Sky Wheel, you will see the Rotor.

I don't know if you will count this one, but Jungle Larry's Jungle Safari is one.
Jungle Larry's AFRICAN Safari was not a ride, but an attraction. That should go to another category, along with IMAX, Lusty Lil's, etc...

Pittsburgh, PA

Now did Kid Art's Court count as a ride???

Also what I need know are the years that all of the rides operated. I will update the list and post the years of operation for the rides I know, but think about it and I will post an updated list in the next few days. Thanks
