The ride itself never moved... the districts were just gerrymandered to slide the borders so the ride was in a different 'area' from time to time.

They have, however, moved some rides.

There have moved two rides three times.
The Hat and Spindletop.

The Tornado at least once.

The Carousel once.

They changed the entrance of the Roaring Rapids to France and back to Tower again.

The Canoe entrance was changed once, from the West side of "Lake" to the east side.

Some of the little rides have been moved.
Red Baron at least once.

Three different scramblers have been at three different locations.

Can't think of any others right now.

The park's original coaster, a wild mouse, saw life in Modern and Mexico.

El Sombrero, a Trabant flat ride, has been moved twice that I recall, plus the actual ride has been replaced with duplicates due to normal wear and tear.

There's also the Texas Tornado. It replaced the Crazy Legs at Good Time Square then moved to Boom Town when the carousel moved to the Star Mall.

Oops, you did. I sometimes speedread and simply just scan the text. For some reason, "Hat" didn't register in my brain as "Sombrero". Maybe I need to be a bilingual speedreader.

on the main (center) part of the sidewinder it say's scrambler design made in chicago il etc:a sleep:

Yup... SFoT takes the generic name away from the ride as part of the theme. So, Missile Chaser - was in the modern section ...kinda a space / futuristic name. Sidewinder... a western theme. I'm not sure what the generic ride name is for El Hat, but I'm sure it has one as these are pretty standard carnival rides.
