This was an Italian-built carnival coaster such as a[clarification needed] Pinfari Zyklon. This coaster was similar to the Flying Dutchman 50 miles (80 km) northwest at Dorney Park & Wildwater Kingdom. The coaster was indeed designed to be portable and moved frequently.
Six Flags decided that a more exciting portable coaster would be an improvement. They removed and sold this one and acquired another compact coaster to build in its place. As a result, this roller coaster is often confuse with a Schwarzkopf Wild Cat roller coaster called Wild Rider which replaced the Big Fury in 1978. The new ride had far more curves than Big Fury.
Until the mid-1990s, a walkway directly connected the area now known as Fantasy Forest with Showcase Theatre. Big Fury was located to the right of this walkway, in the space once occupied by most of Movietown Water Effect and now occupied by The Dark Knight.
