Forest Park Highlands
St Louis

The Forest Park Highlands Amusement Park just west of original Route 66 began with a simple merry-go-round in 1896, and grew to include two roller coasters, rides such as the "Mountain Ride", and the "Racer Dip", a swimming pool, dance hall, and fun house. Fire destroyed most of it in 1963. Forest Park Community College stands on the site today.
