The Witchdoctor (1973-87) was basically an Octopus style ride or Monster. This popular ride was originally located in the short-lived Indian Thicket ('73-'74) area which was incorporated by Country Crossroads in 1975. The Witchdoctor was relocated to the old Surfer location in Pirate Island with the addition of White Lightnin' in 1977. It was repainted with red seats and black arms, and renamed "Black Widow" (lower right photo), where it resided through the 1987 season before being permanantly removed.

The Black Widow was removed after the 1987 season and replaced with the Cinema 180° Theater in 1988.
