The Super Big Gulp coaster came directly from Germany prior to its run at Playland around 1972. This was a typical Jet Star 2 coaster model designed by the late German coaster designer Anton Schwartzkopf. The ride ran for over 20 years at the park (1972-1994).
Ironically, I hadn't known of this coaster's existence until 1990. Unfortunately, during a visit to Playland in the summer of 1994, I almost had a chance to ride this coaster but learned it had been torn down earlier that day. The Vekoma Corkscrew now resides as the park's major "big" steel coaster.
Currently the wooden Coaster, Corkscrew, and the Kettle Creek Mine Coaster are the three roller coasters that operate at the park and PNE.
