• Canadian kids coaster at Chippewa Park deemed unsafe

    A kids out and back steel coaster that provided rides for 45 years in the Thunder Bay region of Canada will not be returning this year.

    The City of Thunder Bay has decommissioned the ride known as the Roller Coaster at Chippewa Park in the Ontario province. Park manager Paul Fayrick stated that coaster will not reopen for safety concerns. The ride was subjected to deeper testing last year when a car of the train experienced a failure.

    The train for the 1967 Spillman Engineering attraction was deemed unrepairable to a safe condition. The coaster originally came from Winnipeg Beach in Manitoba.

    It was one of the oldest running steel roller coasters in all of Canada.
