The Flying Turns

After the closure of the 1933-1934 Chicago World's Fair, Riverview acquired the Flying Turns ride that had been featured on the amusement midway there. This thrilling roller coaster gave riders the feeling of being flight by running in a wooden trough instead of riding on top of track.

This popular ride lasted until the park's closing at the end of the 1967 season. A new Flying Turns based on the Riverview blueprints is being constructed at Knoebel's Grove Amusement Park in Elysburg, Pennsylvania.
