Slipping and Sliding: The Chutes was
the "largest pleasure resort in America" while it
was in operation from 1902 - 1907. The 350-foot-long ride was
located on Fulton Street between 10th and 11th avenues and featured
an ice skating rink, dance hall, shooting gallery, penny arcade,
minature bowling alley and various animal exhibits, including
reptiles and monkeys. The original chutes in San Francisco was
located at Haight and Cole streets and opened in 1895.
