The Chicago was the second modern looping rollercoaster and the first one east of the Mississippi.  No one in the area had ever seen anything like it and it really made quite an impression especially since it looped right over the midway.

With Old Chicago's limited space everything was right next to each other and in this later photo you can see the Toboggan coaster to the right.  Toboggans were made by Chance Rides and you used to find them at traveling fairs a lot back in the 1970's.  The lift is straight up in the middle of the tube.  When you got to the top you spiraled down before hitting a few dips at the end.
