Frederick Church

Fred Church built about 10 coasters in the decade before his death in 1936.  Nearly half of his coasters were designed with the help of Thomas Prior.  Prior and Church coasters were known for their many twists and turns.  Sadly, only three of Church's coasters remain open today.  Prior & Church also developed the racing carousel known as the Derby Racer.
