Ghoster Coaster (formerly Scooby's Gasping Ghoster Coaster), is a junior wooden coaster located at Canada's Wonderland whose name was shortened to just "Ghoster Coaster" for the 2010 season, as part of the transition to Planet Snoopy.
Ghoster Coaster opened, along with the entire park, on May 23, 1981 as one of the four original roller coasters to open with the park. The other three were Dragon Fyre, the Wilde Beast, and the Mighty Canadian Minebuster. All three wooden coasters were designed by Curtis D. Summers and built in-house by the Taft Broadcasting Company. Some sources claim Philadelphia Toboggan Company (PTC) built these coasters, but PTC stopped building coasters in 1979.
