Toboggan was added to the park when Carousel Circle was built, a part of the 1972 renovations to Hersheypark. When it initially opened, it was called the Twin Towers' Toboggan. And while it has also been called the Twin Toboggans, park maps and press releases refer to the ride as Toboggan. In 1974 and 1975, the ride was sponsored by Finnaren & Haley Paints. When the ride was removed, it was demolished.
Two identical Chance Toboggan-style roller coasters stood where the Smaller - Himalaya exists currently. Riders would enter two-person cars, which were pulled to the top of a vertical lift inside a shaft (like riding in an elevator), before spiraling down around the shaft, and hitting a bigger drop and spiral at the bottom.
