Historical Automobiles

The Chaparral Antique Cars are the second-oldest continuously operating park attraction right behind Six Flags Railroad. The ride opened in 1962 and was modeled after the Happy Motoring Freeway which was the same style of ride but with more modern cars.

The Chaparral Antique Cars are themed after the Chaparral Motor Company that was based out of Cleburne, Texas. The Chaparral Motor Company began producing automobiles in 1911.

Not much has changed with the ride today. The cars used to feature coverings that have since been removed. The original queue house, though not used for the Chaparral Antique Cars from 2011-2015, still sits in tact as well as the original garage.
