Jack Rabbit Coaster POV – 1960s

Here’s a great Throwback to the 1960s when the Jack Rabbit was the only wooden coaster on the Wildwood Boardwalk.

I plan on doing a history video on this ride but the short of it is this.

The Jack Rabbit was built in 1919 by it’s owner Ed Rhoads. At the time it was built there was no Schellenger Ave up to the boardwalk so it was built right on the beach. In 1976 it was sold and renamed “the Scream Machine but didn’t see much as a future as in 1984 it was demolished.

This is a cool Point of View on riding the Jack Rabbit.
