Little Leaper is a steel roller coaster at Lakemont Park in Altoona, Pennsylvania. It's a standard Allan Herschel Little Dipper kiddie coaster just for kids. The park currently does not allow teens and adults on it.


  • On September 2, 1991, Chris Wickfield, a seventeen-year-old ride attendant, got dragged away by the coaster and lost his right leg after it got mangled between the train and its track/chain. The incident is featured on Rescue 911.
