Restoration Of Iconic Arnolds Park Roller Coaster Is Complete

Arnolds Park, Iowa — A historic wooden roller coaster will be taking on riders again when the Arnolds Park Amusement Park opens for the season on Saturday.

Jon Pausley is CEO of the Arnolds Park Amusement Park.

The Legend was originally called The Speed Hound and the ride opened in 1930. It’s among the 15 oldest wooden roller coasters operating in the world. It was designed by John Miller, who’s considered the father of high-speed coasters for developing some of the safety features still in use today.
