This is an archived section. It is no longer linked to the Home Page of my website. Too many sections, too many topics pulling me in different directions. I will leave this section here for folks that are interested in kiddie rides. But I won't be actively updating or adding things to this section.

Memphis Kiddie Park
Brooklyn, OH
The Memphis Kiddie Park opened in 1952. In addition to the original Herschell kiddie rides, there is a Herschell carousel. The Little Dipper roller coaster, also manufactured by Herschell, is the oldest operating steel roller coaster in North America. The Park also has a miniature golf course. For more, see these websites: 1, 2, 3.

Little Amerricka
Marshall, WI
Little Amerricka, also known as Little A-Merrick-A, opened in 1991. It features a wonderful collection of kiddie rides and bigger-kid rides as well. Most of the kiddie rides and the carousel are from Herschell. The 1940s firetruck ride was built by the Pinto Brothers Company. These rides all came from other parks. There are also go-karts and a mini golf course. For more, see these websites: 1 and 2.
