History

This ride first operated at LeSourdsville Lake Amusement Park from 1972 to 2002. It was subsequently moved to Fun Spot where it operated until the closure of the park in 2008 and remained standing but not operating. In November 2016, it was purchased by Holiday World who dismantled and refurbished it. The ride's frame was found to be severely rusted and had to be replaced. The Firecracker reopened in 2017.[1]
