From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia..
Leap-The-Dips is the world's oldest operating roller coaster and North America's last surviving side friction roller coaster. It is located at Lakemont Park in Altoona, Pennsylvania and was built in 1902 by the E. Joy Morris Company. Leap-the-Dips operated until 1985, when it closed due to disrepair. A fund-raising campaign led to a restoration starting in 1997 and a reopening on Memorial Day 1999.

Although the ride is quite tame by today's standards, being only 41 ft (12.5 m) in height and having an average speed of 10 mph (16 km/h), many people still ride it. Several riders report that the rear wheels of cars were once able to leave the track at the crest of some dips.

At one time there was a "twin" coaster called Leap the Dips at Mounds State Park in Anderson, Indiana. This ride was installed around the great mound in 1908 and visitors said at the top of the ride you could see all the way down to the river. Due to lack of business, the amusement park started selling its equipment in the early 1920s.

The Leap-The-Dips is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and in 1996 was designated a National Historic Landmark. It is also an American Coaster Enthusiasts Coaster Classic and Coaster Landmark.

Man of Teal Map is now finished and ready to be put onto the server. Before we do however, we would like to give everyone a chance to give their feedback and also note any issues. Here is a general map overview:

- Map is a snow map. Many of us are living in very hot areas in the Northern Hemisphere, and are wishing for at least a day of snow.
- Custom Content has been removed and will not be used in Map . It is currently very unstable in OpenRCT2, which is a cause for concern for us. It may return at a future date, but not for Map . A large amount of Vanilla Scenery is available however.
- The Giga Coaster and the Hyper-Twister Trains have been removed, citing their over-use in the last map. However, a larger variety of Wooden Coasters (and cars), the Inverted Coaster, the Multi-Dimensional Coaster, and the Floorless and Stand-Up Trains for the Twister Coaster will be sure to please the Veteran Players. The inclusion of the Looping Coaster and the Mini Coaster should allow newer players to the server and RCT2 a chance to practice their skills before moving to the more complicated rides.
- Related to the above, a higher amount of snow-themed rides have been included.
- Water Rides are limited, only the Submarine Ride can be utilized. It's a snow map after all...
- Terrain is at a higher height by default now. This allows additional usage of valleys and tunnels for our rides

This map uses pure RCT2 content only, Wacky Worlds and Time Twister are not needed.
