I have no idea what Oaks Amusement Park calls this ride - but at Glen Echo Amusement Park outside of Washington, D.C. - it was "The Whip." Growing up near here in the 1950's and 60's - visits to this classic amusement park were a regular and most anticipated event.
Ah, "The Whip."
I loved this ride. It gave a real sense of loss of control as the cars went into the corners. The wheels would loose their grip on the floor and you would skid through the turns. Terrifying. Absolutely wonderful!
[notebook]: we will have a few days away from Oaks Park - returning here on August 1st.
Whip It! Whip it good!
