The Seattle Worlds Fair opened on April 21, 1962 and ran through October 21, 1962. The Fair, known as the Century 21 Exhibition, was well attended and successful.

The Gayway was the amusement area at the Worlds Fair that operated 20 rides which came from German and Italian manufacturers. Rides such as Calypso, Skooter, Wild Mouse, Allotria - a fun house, Geister Express - a two level ride that went through a Swiss nightmare scene, and the Broadway Trip were some of the popular attractions.

Above are photos of The Broadway Trip which was an enclosed coaster. The ride only operated in Seattle through the duration of the Fair. After it was dismantled, it became a popular ride and made its rounds to other parks around the country. Well known parks such as Cedar Point Park in Sandusky, Ohio, the once famous Palisades Park in Cliffside, New Jersey, The CNE (Canadian National Exhibition) in Toronto, Canada, and Casino Pier purchased Broadway Trip and gave it a home. Throughout the years, this ride was renamed Love Bugs and Wizards Cavern. It was eventually razed in 2003 at Casino Pier.
