A Rifle Range was available at Olentangy Park for many years. Sometimes, it was part of the Shooting Gallery. The standalone Rifle Range in the Midway was opened in 1929. It was located between the Joy Mill and the Mysterious Sensation. The attraction was moved to the Haenlein Brothers' new Zoo Amusement Park across from the Columbus Zoo after the closing of Olentangy Park.[1]
