Photos

Stricker's Grove has a variety of rides and games for all ages. We have two roller coasters. The Tornado is a wooden roller coaster designed by Al Collins and built by Ralph Stricker. Ralph Stricker is the only person in the United States to build his own coaster. Construction was started in November, 1990 and completed in June, 1993. The second roller coaster is the Teddy Bear. The original Teddy Bear was located in kiddie land at Coney Island in Cincinnati, Ohio. Ralph Stricker obtained the blueprints and rebuilt the Teddy Bear at Stricker's Grove. Including all the rides, Stricker's Grove also has an 18 hole miniature golf, arcade with video games and skeeball, shooting gallery, and horseshoes.
