Wizard's Cavern was a steel wild mouse roller coaster built by German manufacturer Mack Rides that was previously located at Casino Pier in Seaside Heights, New Jersey, USA.
The ride was built in 1959 and purchased by Biermann, who traveled with it on the German fair circuit.
It was later send to the USA where it premiered in Gayway where it would operate in 1962.
The ride would then be purchased by Cedar Point, and later by Palisades Amusement Park. It would operate there until 1967, it was send back to Mack to be refurbished after this time, and reappeared in Palisades the following season. The ride had undergone a name and theme change during its refurbishment and was now known as Luv Bugs.
The ride closed again on September 12, 1971 and was shipped to Canada, where it operated at the Canadian National Exhibition. Unlike other coasters at this Exhibition, the Luv Bugs wasn't dismantled when the park was closed.
After its time on the fair, the ride shipped back to the USA, where it opened at Casino Pier in 1979. It was rethemed in 1988, converting Luv Bugs into Wizard's Cavern
