Reprieve for Zippin’ Pippin’
The wooden coaster was originally built in Tennessee, US, in 1912 and was relocated to the now-closed Libertyland in the mid-1970s. The ride was sold at auction in 2006 and its future was uncertain.
Now, however, the developer of the Pyramid Harbor project, the Ericson Group, has agreed a deal with the Save Libertyland group to relocate and restore the coaster to its Mud Island site. It has optioned a deal to move the nearby Grand Carousel also.
