RollerCoaster! ~ Fall 1993

Roller Coaster magazine thumbnail

Synopsis:
This issue provided me with valuable information about Jantzen Beach and its coaster. Steve Dennis who wrote the article also featured some photos of the Dipper that were taken by him two weeks prior to when it was razed. Dennis was a crew member on the coaster in its final season. For many years, I had been searching to find something that had tangible evidence of this coaster's existence. After joining ACE (American Coaster Enthusiasts) in 1999, I found this article in a back issue of Roller Coaster!
