You may have heard by now that Muskego Fest has changed its name to DandiLion Daze, in a nod to the city’s once-famous DandiLion Park, which at one time housed the *country’s* fastest rollercoaster, the Tail Spin.
Prior to being renamed DandiLion Park in 1968, the property was called the Muskego Beach Amusement Park. In total, the park had a long and glorious run, albeit with a few interruptions, from 1861-1977.
You can read more about the park’s history and see photos and mementos at this page of the Muskego Historical Society’s Web site.
