Does anyone recall an old ride that I think was on Grouse Mountain, late 70's/80's, that was a sort of rail guided tobaggan type thing?
You sat on a plastic sled of sorts, I seem to recall it had a hand brake, and you shot down the mountain on a railed track?

I sorta remember it. It was an old wooden ride, slightly elevated off the ground. I'm pretty sure it disappeared in the mid to late 70's though.

I never rode it, but I remember it. It was definitely there into the early 80s. I moved to Vancouver in 1980 and it was there for a couple years after that.
Looked kinda freaky, I seem to remember my mother forbidding me to go anywhere near it...
