1991, a small, classic-like amusement park opened to the public. There was something special that no other theme park had, a railroad. This was just not another railroad. Yet, it was a railroad that is still being used for more than just riding. On the Whiskey River Railway, there are shops that you will pass on the 3 mile journey into wild life. Shops that are still being used today for building cars, steam, and engines. You will also pass zebras, llamas, trees, and through a tunnel. It's the most popular family attraction in the area!
They opened with only a few rides and attractions. They decided to expand in 1993, 2 years after opening, with 3 roller coasters. One consist of a 90 degree lift hill that comes out through the top of a tower and spirals around the out side of the tower in which it came up from known as the Wild & Wooly Toboggan. It's one of the couple remaining in the world today. Others ones are Mad Mouse and Little Dipper. Mad Mouse is a family coaster with mild hills and exciting turns. Little Dipper is gentle for the young ones and has a great view of the kiddie section in which it circles around.
That wasn't the end for Little Amerricka. They added a bigger flat ride known as Test Pilot. It's a Loop-O-Plane model which has two planes at each end of a vertical rotating structure. 2007 came one of its biggest surprises yet, Meteor. It was a former wooden coaster of past amusement parks like Kiddytown and Hillcrest Park. It was made in 1953 and stand as the models only type left. Its sister was Kiddie Land's Little Dipper which closed in 2009.
There are many other family rides such as bumper boats, go-karts, carousels, and spinning rides. It has a good size kids area that consists of many kiddie rides. Other activities to do around the park is the gift shop and its picnic area. Don't judge its size because it's a park with many "big" surprises.
