Chris said:I've been looking for pictures of this ride too, obviously with no luck as there's no picture on the site... yet. I'm convinced I'll find a picture somewhere, there has to be at least one somewhere online.
Yoshi said:Did anyone ever ride this ride? How is it? I under stand that it was a "kiddy" ride but an opinion would be nice from an actual rider. Other information about the ride would also be helpful. I have been told that Glissade did not have any restraints, did the smaller version of the ride also lack restraints?
Nora said:I never got a chance to ride it either, but I remember it clearly. My mom never let me on it as she was scared I would fly out of it. Overprotective mom, thy name is Mona. :dodgy:
What happened was "I" took my mom on Space Mountain when I was almost three. (Yes, I was a tall kid) and because the lap bar did not close on me because my mom was so much bigger; I in fact, almost fell out.
Of course, I had the time of my life... but my mom was horrified. Going to Busch Gardens after that event was miserable as she scrutinized every height restriction imaginable.
Chris said:Here's a picture of Das Katzchen, it was located directly beside Die Wildkatze and was essentially just a scaled down version of Glissade.
I actually had the brochure with a picture of it this whole time!
Chris said:Another reason the park should set up some type of history display in the park. I wish they had made room for something like that in the new Oktoberfest, would have been a nice way to tie the park's past into the future.

I want to see some sort of monument or plaque commemorating the Big Bad Wolf by it's former station when the 2012 coaster occupies it. I doubt they would do that though. :-/
