Wisdom Rides was started by Jerry Wisdom in 1969. The company currently makes a few varieties of kiddie coasters. Their most produced models are the Dragon Wagon which has a dragon on the front, and the Orient Express which features an oriental dragon on the front.
Only a few copies with a tiger on the front have been built. Tiger Express at the Oakland Zoo and Tiger Terror at Safari Land both have tigers on the lead car, but those two versions are much larger than this ride in Missouri.
