The ride known as Shoot the Chutes was first introduced in 1895 by inventor Captain Paul Boyton at Sea Lion Park, the first enclosed outdoor amusement park in Coney Island. He billed it as "the King of All Amusements." In 1902 he sold the park to a couple of young sharps, Fred Thompson and Elmer "Skip" Dundy. One year later the new gates opened and Luna Park was in operation.
