Little Dipper was purchased by Six Flags at the Kiddieland auction in the Fall of 2010. This classic wooden coaster was then relocated from the Melrose Park site to Six Flags Great America where it continues to operate today.
Herb Schmeck designed this classic junior "figure 8" wooden roller coaster with the family in mind. Little Dipper may be designed for kids, but it delivers enough thrills to excite adults. The three story tall lift hill carries the train up to begin its journey through a series of pint sized drops and hills before returning to the station.
