The Loch Ness Monster Finally Sighted

 That was the headline back in 1978 when The Loch Ness Monster first opened.  At the time, John B. Roberts, General Manager of The Old Country, stated, “There has never been anything like it.  For openers, it’s the tallest and fastest coaster-style ride with the steepest drop in the world … and the only one with interlocking loops.  On top of that, part of it’s in total darkness.”

We are going back in time and remembering the “Glissade” and the “Red Baron” for this Throwback Thursday. The “Glissade” was a German-built bobsled-like coaster that was referred to as the best thrill ride of its size and kind in the world.  “The Red Baron” was a ride where kids could enjoy the thrill of piloting their own fighter planes.
