After the 2005 season Zippin' Pippin and Libertyland closed due to financial problems and in January 2011 the roller coaster was demolished. The Zippin' Pippin was built in 1923 and features an "out and back" layout. It's probably best remembered for the fact that it was Elvis Presley's favorite roller coaster.
