The Little Dipper will be rebuilt in the Bugs Bunny National Park area between the "Buzzy Bee" ride and the Looney Tooter train ride. It will replace the "ball room" attraction that has been closed "for refurbishment" for several years. Unclear if the structure will remain with the roller coaster going through the building. The new kiddie coaster should bring some much needed foor traffic to an area that is usually sparsely visited.

During January 2010, sections of track were piled up in the employee parking lot. Is it expected that the new coaster will open "some time" during the 2010 season.

Dipper is now under construction and is expected to open in June. Correction: It is not replacing the "ball room" which has been closed for "refurbishment" for several seasons. (READ: never to open again). Little Dipper coaster will be at the front of Bugs Bunny National Park...to the right of the entrance in a location former held by a playground and tube/net climbing attraction. Both closed for the past several seasons.
