Overview:
The Amusement Park Drive-In located in Billings, MT, is owned and operated by Riley and Vickie Cooke. And, according to their web site, it "is the old Park Drive-in from downtown Cody, Wyoming, which opened in 1946 and ran thru 2003. The Cooke's tore down the wood screen tower and hauled it to Billings. [They] rebuilt it during 2004 and 2005 and opened it in July 2005." What makes this park unique is that they show movies on both sides of the Drive-In screen and the projection booth is a 1909 caboose. The back projection booth is a 1938 truck that Riley purchased out of the Billings Gazette for $300.00 and rebuilt in their shop.

But, what completes this park's unusual and different outdoor movie atmosphere is in 2009 they added a Herschell Little Dipper steel coaster and built it around the entire screen! And, they will also soon be adding a Monster Mouse to its collection of rides that includes: a kiddie Ferris Wheel (5 cages), Outlaw Race Car Ride, and Lady Bug. The Cooke's plan on adding more rides in the future.
