It was once the “world’s largest amusement park.” It boasted the world’s first suspended roller coaster and first parachute ride. The names alone evoke nostalgia: the Pair-O-Chutes, Aladdin’s Castle, Shoot the Chutes and of course, the Bobs roller coaster.

Join historian Leslie Goddard, Ph.D. for a look back at the history of Riverview, from its opening in 1904 to its closing in 1967.
