Dipper was a wooden roller coaster previously located at Kennywood in West Mifflin, Pennsylvania, USA. The ride was built by Philadelphia Toboggan Company in 1948.


The ride opened as Little Dipper in 1948. After the 1957 season, it was remodeled with a taller lift hill and was renamed Dipper.

The ride was demolished shortly before Labor Day in 1984.[1] It was replaced in 1985 with Raging Rapids.
