    Didn't find the coaster all that rough or thrilling. I'm a coaster counter though, and knocked another one off my list.

    Originally the idea of John D. Spreckels, the original coaster was built by a crew of 100 to 150 people in two weeks

    The 2,600 ft. long coaster was built in 1925 in less than two months. It closed in 1976. The "Save the Coaster Committee" had it designated a National Landmark in 1987 and it reopened in 1990.
