Scooby's Ghoster Coaster was a steel suspended single rail family roller coaster themed after the cartoon Scooby-Doo located at Kings Island in Mason, Ohio, USA. It was built by Caripro and operated from 1998 to 2005.

History

In August 1997, Scooby's Ghoster Coaster was announced.[1] It opened April 18, 1998 as "America's first suspended coaster for kids".[2]

The ride utilized an elevator lift system that brought the car up vertically to the highest point of the ride.

Scooby's Ghoster Coaster was removed after the 2005 season.[3] The ride's track pieces sat in storage on the park's property for several years before ultimately being scrapped.
