DoghouseKiddieRide

The Snoopy's doghouse kiddie ride made by the British company Jolly Roger.

In 1996, Kiddie's Manufacturing Inc., based in Lares, Puerto Rico, manufactured three rides under the Peanuts license featuring Snoopy and Woodstock in various vehicles--an ice cream truck, fire truck, and biplane. The music played in these rides is "Linus and Lucy".[1]

From 1997 to the early 2000s, Jolly Roger (Amusement Rides) Ltd., based in Lincolnshire, England, manufactured a ride featuring Snoopy's doghouse. Various versions of the ride were made over time. The very original model had a British adult voice which said "Please insert another coin," and sometimes "Press the START button to go" if the ride required usage of a 'START' button to run. The original model also played "Peppermint Patty" by Vince Guaraldi while the ride was in motion. In later versions of the ride, race car noises were used instead of "Peppermint Patty", likely due to a licensing agreement with Warner Bros. Records having expired.
