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 returing to the station.
