About the Ride Info Box

Rallye Racers was, as described by a newspaper ad, "an adventure in wheeee! A coaster ride from Germany, featuring hairpin curves." It opened on August 16, 1974 and was located on the Boulevard near where the Splash Over sits today. It was the same coaster that was moved a few years later and renamed Der Flitzer.

It was located somewhere around where Tea Cups is. This is based from seeing it in an old photo of the Sky Ride that was taken in 1975. It shows a coaster matching this description in the background. (Thanks to Johnathan C. for pointing this out.)


What's in a name?

Rallye is apparently a German thing. There is a race in Germany that uses this name. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rallye_Deutschland
