Located just to the east of Des Moines, this site was originally the Des Moines airport. But in 1974, the land was turned into an amusement park. Its opening was delayed until August because the park was damaged by a tornado. Today the park has over 100 rides and attractions spread over its 180 acres.
Flitzer (1975-1991) was a small "Flitzer" model coaster from Zierer. It ran at several European parks both before and after its time in Iowa.
Super Screamer (1976-1999) was a 45-foot tall "Galixi" model from SDC. It is currently Screaming Mummy at Pharaoh's Lost Kingdom in California.
