Caterpillar Ride-Late 1960's
Does anyone remember a ride that was something like the Himalaya with a twist? While going around, a canvas awning came up and around the cars so that the occupants were completely covered and in the dark. It may have been called the 'caterpillar' or the 'cocoon'. It was on Marine Pier which is present day Mariners Landing. My dear mother would ride this fast and somewhat scary ride and considering that I was a 'late in life' baby, she must have been in her late forties when she joined me in this nauseating 'fun'.
