History

The ride first opened as "Scooby Zoom" in 1992 known for the Scooby-Doo show.

It was later renamed "Top Cat's Taxi Jam" in 1998 to fit the Top Cat cartoons. It had six cars, decorated to look like five cabs and one police car following.

It was then renamed, again, "Little Bill's Giggle Coaster" in 2006 to fit in with Little Bill, a show on Noggin/Nick Jr. which began in 1999, based on the books by Bill Cosby.

Finally, in 2010, it received its current name, "Great Pumpkin Coaster".
