Rudy's Rapid Transit

Roller Coaster retirement in Fall 2023

EnJOY Rudy’s Rapid Transit Roller Coaster one more summer before the ride is retired from service. It’s the feel of flying with reindeer, like Santa does on his annual trip to deliver presents.

Children at least 39 inches tall can ride with adults, as the coaster climbs 26 feet before descending onto a double-figure-eight track with multiple dips & turns at up to 22 mph.

Rudy’s has been at Santa’s Village since 1988. It started out in Hudson, NH, from 1981 through 1987 at Benson’s Animal Park (New England Playworld), and was known as the Firefly Coaster.

It’s a fun family ride and while we’ll be a little sad to see it go, as we saw when the original Great Humbug Adventure was retired for a beautiful modern dark ride, a ride retirement can give us a chance to improve. We’ll enjoy one more summer of Pure Joy, Family Style with Rudy’s coaster & we’ll share news about improvements for future seasons soon.
