This small coaster was originally known as the Clown Coaster from 1971 to 1984, then changed to the Wile E. Coyote Coaster from 1985 to 1998. It was removed from the park for three years, it was redesigned, and it eventually reappeared as Goliath Jr. in 2001. When the kids' area of the park was remade into Thomas Town, the ride was rethemed based on the kids' TV show Thomas & Friends. The ride was renamed Percy's Railway in 2008, and the lead car was redone to look like Percy the Small Engine, and the last two cars were modified to resemble the Troublesome Trucks. That version did not last very long as Six Flags removed most of its licensed theming in all of its amusement parks when it reorganized under bankruptcy protection in 2010. The kids' area reopened in March 2011 as Whistlestop Park, and the coaster was rechristened Magic Flyer.
