Funicular was a small oval coaster manufactured by Allan Herschell of North Tonawanda, NY Funicular was displaced in 1979 when Le Carousel was added in its place, at that point Funicular was moved to Africa and re-named Silly Serpent. Silly Serpent was repainted from its original red to green and had a large fiberglass snake head and tail added to the train, at this point it was located directly across the midway from the Zulu. Silly Serpent was removed from the park following the 1987 season.
