Hoot N Holler is a steel kiddie roller coaster located at Six Flags Darien Lake in Darien Center, New York, USA. Opened in 1981, it was the park's first roller coaster, when it was known as the Ladybug.[1] The track is in an oval shape, with small hills designed for young children to ride. The train is shaped like a caterpillar.

History

When the ride was built in 1981, it was the first roller coaster at the park.[2] It was called Ladybug because of the shape of the trains. Located from 1981-1988 in the vicinity of the Giant Wheel, it was later moved to Adventure Land for Kids (created in 1988) it was renamed as Nessie the Dreamy Dragon to fit with the dragon-like theming of the area and was located where the Big Kahuna is now and is now near Mind Eraser in an area called the Tiny Trio which features three of the Adventure Land for Kids the other two rides are an umbrella kiddie ride called BMX Motocross and Dodgems kiddie bumper cars ride.

For the 2012 season, Darien Lake rethemed their kid's section to Rowdys Ridge which will bring three new rides Hornet’s Nest, Moose on the Loose, and Rowdy’s Heave Ho! and the retheme of two attractions Brain Teaser to Hoot N Holler and Raccoon Rally.
