Toboggan was the name of a steel roller coaster located at Conneaut Lake Park in Conneaut Lake, Pennsylvania. The ride was removed from the park in September 2014. It was located just outside the Midway area near the site of the former Dreamland Ballroom. Each car can hold two riders. The ride was removed from the park in September 2014, after sitting SBNO for seven years. It still remains on two trailers at the rear of the main parking lot.
The Ride[edit]
Toboggan is a portable roller coaster that was built by Chance Industries from 1969 to the mid-1970s. The coaster features a small vehicle, holding two people, that climbs vertically inside a hollow steel tower then spirals back down around the same tower. There is a small section of track at the base of the tower with a few small dips and two turns to bring the ride vehicle back to the station. Each vehicle has a single rubber tire with a hydraulic clutch braking system that governs the speed of the vehicle as it descends the tower. The rubber tire engages a center rail that begins halfway through the first spiral. The ride stands 45 feet tall with a track length of 450 feet. A typical ride lasts approximately 70 seconds.[1] [2][verification needed]
