After the 2005 season Zippin' Pippin and Libertyland were closed due to financial problems. After standing-but-not-operating for more than four years the roller coaster was demolished in January 2010. Zippin' Pippin was built in 1923 and featured a basic "out and back" layout. It's probably best remembered for being Elvis Presley's favorite roller coaster.
