Veggie Tale Spin was an L&T Systems steel kiddie roller coaster at Kentucky Shores Family Fun Center in Gilbertsville, Kentucky, USA. The ride was formerly located at Dollywood in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee under the name of Sideshow Spin. It operated at the park from 2005 to 2016. The ride was once themed to the VeggieTales series before the name was dropped in 2012.

History

For the 2005 season, Dollywood expanded the County Fair section by adding new family rides. One of these rides was an L&T Systems kiddie coaster named VeggieTales Sideshow Spin. The original color scheme was a pink track with silver supports.

In 2012, the same year Wild Eagle opened, the attraction was renamed to Sideshow Spin. All references to the VeggieTales series had to be removed. The ride was repainted with an emerald green track with peach supports.

After the 2016 season, Sideshow Spin was sent to Kentucky Shores Family Fun Center where it became Veggie Tale Spin in 2017. However, the new ride wouldn't last long. It was removed in 2018 due to the ground being too soft. In 2019, the ride was sent to London, UK.
