The Auto Skooter was the predecessor of today’s Boomerang bumper car ride. It was located in the building now occupied by the Scamper bumper cars for kids. When the Auto Skooter was new in 1966, a newspaper article claimed they were “faster and more fun” than the previous Dodgem ride.

They were replaced in 1977 when the Scamper and Boomerang bumper car rides were added.
