Background of Disney
Disney is a nationally known organization perhaps best known for its amusement parks. Amusement parks have been around for many years and center on family entertainment. There are rides that take a person to extreme heights and fast drops. Some celebrities loan their names and likeness to amusement parks.
America's amusement park history begins on Coney Island in 1875. Railway companies, in search of ways to keep passenger usage up on the weekends, set up parks here at the end of the rail lines and introduced weekend and summer activities. The first rides at these parks were carousels, but in 1884, the first gravity switchback train was introduced. This was the first true roller coaster in America.
In 1912, the first under friction roller coaster was introduced by John Miller.
